I would book on NW simply to enjoy their DC9s. Outside of having a classic appeal, admire the extremities NW went to in modernizing the interiors of their DC9s. The seats are new, the overheads are new and have the '717' style handrails. Their A320s have less appeal. My weekly MSP-MKE A320 run is typically full and cramped, but if it interests you, I recommend it. Plus, NW's service is fantastic.

Normally, I would pick the United flight but given their
current state of cancelling flights daily and the fact
that 57% of their flights operated on time in June, I
would hesitate and probably take Northwest Airlines.
But I'd also seriously consider AA and probably not
fly NW over AA if given the choice.
I'd also consider flying Dallas/Ft.Worth to CLE on
Continental then to Midway on CO again.
The connection at CLE will be smooth, as it is a
small hub and the flights will be on 737's all the
way most likely.
You can also fly from Love Field, via CLE, on a
Continental Expressjet from LOVE to CLE.
