Midwest Airlines and the Milwaukee Bucks have inked an expanded deal in which they will sponsor a group suite at the Bradley Center rebranded as the Midwest Airlines Hometown Champions Club. They are already the official airline of the Bucks.
There has been a decent amount of sponsorship competition in MKE between AirTran, Midwest, and Southwest (as of late) getting their names on events and sponsorships. Not necessarily bidding-war-style compeitition, but it's a big part of the PR war here in Milwaukee as they jockey for public visibility for the buck.

And Midwest is also the official airline of the Green Bay Packers & the Packer radio network as well even thought travel on DL/NW A/C although a little "inside bird" at YX has told me that next year they were going to try for the charters for both the Packers and the Broncos after the A320's were in service. I really wonder if they could get the Packer gig because they normal fly out on widebodies, well at least they did the past few years, not sure this year.
I miss the 60's & 70's when you felt like a guest on the plane not cattle like today

Havent heard of the charter rumor yet, but that would be nice to see. YX actually had a good charter division with many clients, untill it was dissolved because of pilot contract negotiations.
Yeah not only is the battle at the airport, but you here it on the radio and see it on the news daily. Things are getting interesting!
