MIDWEST AIRLINES TOPS CONDENAST TRAVELER
BUSINESS TRAVEL AWARDS POLL
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, September 21, 2006 — Milwaukee-based Midwest Airlines has come out on top in the 9th annual Business Travel Awards poll conducted by Condá Nast Traveler magazine, placing first in the single-class domestic airline category. The airline’s score of 51.8 topped JetBlue (49.7), Song (40.1), Frontier (29.9) and Horizon (28.9).
Midwest also earned the highest scores in three of the five categories making up the single-class airline category: Seat Comfort/Legroom, Food, and Cabin Service.
Announcing the award in the magazine’s October issue, Condé Nan editors said, “As for single- class airlines, Midwest narrowly edges out JetBlue, knocking that carrier to No. 2 after two years in the top spot. While JetBlue has an impressive margin of victory in the Amenities/Technology category (overnight kits and seat-back television screens go a long way), Midwest does better on every other criterion.”
