Hey, folks,
In 1 week, I'm going to be connecting in Milwaukee on my way to Boston from Omaha. This is my first time flying solo. Here's my itinerary:

YX 1637
DEP: OMA 2:15PM
ARR: MKE 3:35PM

YX 1907
DEP: MKE 4:20PM
ARR: BOS 7:25PM

Will I have enough time in Milwaukee to make my connection? Or should I try and go standby on an earlier flight out of OMA?

More than enough. You could walk the length of the YX MKE terminal in about 5 minutes. 10 if you stop for Starbucks.

Note for readers, if you are going from YX to FL or WN (Switching terminals) that time estimate does not apply as you have to go outside security, but for all YX connections it should be fine.

Yup, as long as you're in the same concourse, that's plenty of time. Those flight OMA-MKE-BOS flight times are all YX flights, so no issue there.

MKE airlines by concourse...each concourse is a separate security area:

C: Air Canada, AirTran, American, United, USAirways

D: Frontier, Great Lakes, Midwest, Southwest

E: Continental, Delta

For anyone who must change concourses, 40 minutes is adequate as long as things are running on time, but even a small delay on the inbound could make that tight. But no issue for the orginal poster since both flights are in D.

Thanks, folks. I'm really looking forward to this trip. Like I said, this is my first time flying solo.one more question

Since the Republic takeover, is YX still pretty good with their on-time performance?

I have bad luck but I have taken a grand total of 16 YX flights and exactly 2 have been on-time. While, I have never missed a connection (YX usually holds them), I have learned to always wear running shoes when I fly YX.

Like others have said, provided you are close to on time into MKE, there is absolutely no problem whatsoever with this connection. It's a piece of cake!

Have a good trip!
