Hi, everyone. As most of you know, YX has replaced most of their 717s with Republic ERJ-170s. Having seen one on departure from OMA the other day, it put me to wondering: When did Midwest Express begin flying to Omaha? I know Midwest as we know it now began in 2003, but I'm asking about the original, just for curiosity's sake. Thanks for any information you have to offer.

Midwest started flying to Omaha in spring of 1995. 3X to MKE, 2x to LAX, 1x to EWR and shortly after they added 2x to DCA.

That level of service was essentially stable until 2001 with minor adjustments:

--Periodic weekend nonstop to MCO, plus looping SAN into the OMA-LAX flights.
--1x mainline to MCI to to route crew & aircraft, plus a brief try at 3x OMA-MCI on Skyway.

In 2001 they added a 4th OMA-MKE.

After 9/11 the 2x to DCA and 1x to EWR ended temporarily, and OMA-LAX was axed permanently. 3x OMA-MCI came but that only lasted several months.

The 2x OMA-DCA returned in 2002, then the 1x OMA-EWR but that ended after Continental Express came to OMA-EWR with RJ's.

OMA-LAX was relaunched 1x/day in 2007, but that ended again in early 2008.

Wow. I never knew that they flew to EWR, MCO, or SAN from here (even though I knew all that other stuff). I guess I feel a bit of a connection to them because I first flew them in July 1995. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, the SAN and MCO flights were weekend only and just periodic. But OMA-EWR was 1x per day for years with a 60-seat DC9-10. In addition to the one nonstop, Midwest typically flew twice-daily 1-stop flights, and they served a pretty strong traffic stream between Omaha and Newark. When Continental came in with multiple nonstop ERJ's and Midwest got rid of the smallest 60-seat DC9's, Midwest's traffic between Omaha and Newark dried up.

One other thing I did not mention. Midwest briefly flew a red-eye OMA-LAS flight in 1996 or so several nights per week.
