What was the original plane? Saab 340s?
MKE may be a small airport, but not that small. The Saab doesn't even have the range to get to MKE from DFW. We get mainline JET service from NW, HP, DL, Frontier (callsign?), FL & YX. We get regional JET service from AA, AC, CO, DL, UA, US. The only turboprop service we receive is Midwest Connect (hub) and ATA Connection.
Previous AA DFW-MKE routes were operated by the ER4s.

I know Tekelberry, I didn't say it was small. In fact, I knew that NW used to operate DC-10s into MKE. I already knew it was a good sized airport. I am sorry, I forgot AE had ERJs. I had a stupid moment there. I am sorry if I made it sound offending.
