From the folks at the airport:
Lambert-St. Louis International Airport passengers have a new seating option with the debut of rocking chairs. The "Lambert Rocks" campaign kicked off Tuesday with an open-house style event in the East Terminal to allow visitors to try out the custom blue rockers. Passengers can take a seat on 70 rocking chairs now located beyond the security checkpoints near airline gates and other high profile passenger areas in Lambert's concourses.
The addition of rocking chairs is the latest component of a program called "Lambert Advantage," which is focused on adding new and improved services and amenities throughout the airport.
"We've spent a lot of time listening to our passengers and business traveler groups about what they wanted to see at Lambert," said Dick Hrabko, Director of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. "Rocking chairs have been a top request. They have been well received at some other airports, but we've gone a step further to give these chairs a bit of 'Lambert personality.'"
Passengers will not have any trouble spotting the blue rocking chairs with Lambert logos as they make their way down to their gates. The adult-sized wooden rockers (47" high, 26" wide) are manufactured by the Hinkle Chair Company of Springfield, Tennessee. The company produces chairs for numerous companies and organizations, but Lambert is one of the first to order rocking chairs with customized colors and logos.
Now passengers can take a seat in style and rock in comfort as they wait to board their planes.
Other "Lambert Advantage" programs include live music performance at the Music Spot, and a new cell phone parking lot that will open within just a few weeks.
