Eventful day at MKE I guess although this is not a big deal at all. I am waiting to hear from the passenger who feared for their lives.

I thought FL had based extra a/c at MKE so that if a mechanical issue came up they could just change a/c? If so why then would they need to rebook them onto other flights and delay their pax. even more so? Just a thought.

I'm on that flight. Returned to MKE after masks dropped, landed safely. No big deal. Did an equipment swap and we're at top of descent as I write this (on GoGo!).

Good old Milwaukee Journal does it again, they said you had to re-book to other flights. Guess not.

Also, according to them a 717 is indistinguishable from a 737  Smile

Lots of oddness all the way around.

FL 211 runs SEA-MKE-ATL and is scheduled as a 737. Highly doubtful they ran a 717 into SEA. If it really was a 717 on the MKE-ATL leg yesterday, it was already a plane switch.

AirTran's website shows FL 211 as cancelled yesterday...both SEA-MKE and MKE-ATL. So if they did just roll out a spare sitting around in MKE they never got their own FLIFO right.

YELLOW JOURNALISM  banghead 

A slow news day. And, the fact that the O2 maks cascaded out of the overhead panels=must read stop the presses news. No celebritart was caught showing her cookie, no celebrity went to the great wide open and we all know about NBC late night drama so when anything happens aviation related it makes the newspaper.



I'm Zippyjet & I approve of this message!

I was on it in Seattle. It was a 73G (Ship 308 as I mentioned above). You're right - you won't see a FL 717 in Seattle.

The second leg of FL211 (MKE->ATL) was indeed cancelled. Pax were combined on FL491 and we all made it to ATL safely.
