Well just out of curiousity and boredom I was on flightaware checking out the activity at MKE. While scrolling through the enroute/scheduled arrivals, I noticed that NW flt. 1614 was scheduled to arrive from CUN at 10:42?! I remmeber NW used to fly this route, but they pulled their P2P flying a while ago, so this didn't make to much sense. So I went on MKE's website and found the same thing! Is NW still flying this route, or is this just some kind of charter service? I would find it strange for NW to still be flying this route since many people questioned it when they first announced it. Maybe one of the NW or MKE guys can clear this up for me. Thanks!

I see, just seems strange they'd pull all the other routes and leave this one. If I remmeber correctly this route was flown seasonally every Saturday, looks like this is still the case. I guess NW is closer to coming back to MKE than we thought. Here's a more recent picture of the completed flight from flightaware:

Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Quoting Meteorologist (Reply 1): I noticed the route is still in the NWA World Traveller magazine, and I was thinking the same thing. I would assume it's still scheduled service.
Yes we have several flights to non-hub destinations out of our what we call heartland markets. We started flying to some sun and leisure destinations out of MKE/MSN/IND to places like LAS, LAX, SFO, MCO, TPA, FLL, RSW, and CUN. Some have worked, some haven't. IND has been the most productive and lucretive for us. We've been able to add more destinantions and create more of a hub-type operation, rather than just a focus city.

Since NWA have FF mileages agreement with Midwest, I guess the weekly service works well because people can add thier miles to Midwest's FF program (or visa versa).
Pardon the off-subject, some of you mentioned NWA World Traveler Magazine, I can't stand seeing SkyTeam routes in it -- it's hard enought to figure out NWA's routes. Is there a way I can get NWA routes map?
