Sunday the 7th is the last day for scheduled MD-80 service with Midwest. The two charter planes will continue until at least the end of the month if not longer.

I noticed 5 MD-80s parked down by the maintenance hangers this afternoon, I assume 2 were charter aircraft as for the others, are they are ready getting pulled? Also any idea where they will be going, along with the 5 717s?

Have some of them already been taken out of service? Because I drove by MKE the other day and there were quite a bit of them parked by the YX hanger, including one with its engines taken off.


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

A lot of airlines in the United States have been phasing them out this decade.
US Airways did so earlier this decade, Continental did so in 2005, Alaska just did so and now Midwest is doing so. As far as I can see in the top of my knowledge, only American and Delta will have MD-80's for a long time to come. If, besides AA and DL, I miss a US airline still flying the Super 80 please don't hesitate to correct me. Northwest had MD-80's, only a few of them, after the merger with Republic 22 years ago but they were phased out quickly. If TWA was still in business today they would still be flying it because they took delivery of the youngest ones built in 2000.
I know in Europe, SAS and Alitalia are the two major operators of the type, with Spanair and Iberia still flying a few of those.

Allegiant has a very large MD-80 fleet and they are always looking for well maintained
models to add to their fleet.

Nope. Just flew TPA>MKE yesterday. 717. About 80% full at that.
