Here’s a great new trend at airports: Customer Appreciation Week.
From May 4-10, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport will be celebrating passengers with a wide variety of events, giveaways and appearances.
There will be a “selfie station” in the baggage claim with large photo backdrops where travelers can have photos of themselves pretending to climb the Gateway Arch or petting a sea lion from the Saint Louis Zoo. Those who tweet their selfies (#STLfies) have a chance of winning a pair of St. Louis Cardinals baseball tickets.
Monday and Tuesday, assorted local mascots and characters will be making appearances in both Terminals 1 and 2, including Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny from Six Flags, Fredbird from the St. Louis Cardinals, Rampage from the St. Louis Rams and Louie from the St. Louis Blues.
Wednesday is Airlines Day, when airlines will be handing out candy and other surprises at the gates and all week there will live music events in both terminals.
