I'll be flying Midway from BOS to MSY in Feb. This will be my first time on Midway, and I was wondering how good the service is. Also, are the connections easy in RDU? I think the connecting time is 25/30 minutes. Should I expect full flights on both the BOS-RDU and RDU-MSY legs? I hear that JI's New Orleans service is doing well because they will add a third flight in November. Thanks alot for the help.
Sorry I moved from SXM, looking for a new house on Anguilla now!

I have taken several flights w/ Midway, my first happened to be a flight from FLL to LAX(no longer a city served by JI) via RDU and I was very happy by their service. I recently took a trip on them(one-way) from EWR to FLL same-plane via RDU, and again, I was delighted.
You have chosen to fly JI from BOS to MSY via RDU. On the BOS-RDU leg, I would expect F100s and newly delivered 73G's on the route. JI's concourse at RDU has a linear pattern(meaning all gates are lined up in a row), so if you deplane at Gate C20 and the RDU-MSY flight boards at Gate C3, I would anticipate a 5-10 minute walk. It's not too bad, unless you really hate walking.
Their service is good for such a low fare. All flights on the BOS-RDU and RDU-MSY have a cold snack service.
Because JI has frequent service from BOS to RDU, I don't think that you're flight is going to be full, however, expect a full house on the RDU-MSY leg. You'll be on a CRJ(50 seats) unless a 73G is added which might happen due to the load factor.

I will be flying JI for the first time in December. My route will be IND-RDU-LGA-RDU-IND. I am scheduled on CRJs into Indy and F100s into LGA. Does anyone know when 737-700 service will start? Will they serve LGA, and is there a chance that theyll switch my schedule. I have sampled 3 73Gs of WN and I'm flying on my first 738 next Friday. I would like to compare the interiors of WN and JI 737s which are probabally starkly different. I did love the Southwest aircraft, though, as it is a TREMENDOUS improvement of their 733s which seem quite tatty in comparison.

I forgot to mention that all of JI's seats are leather, probably the first thing you notice when you step onboard a JI flight. So to FlyAA757, I don't think you'll find much of a difference of interior vs. WN in terms of how seating goes, but, JI does have a first class section in it's F100's and soon-to-be 73G's.
Also FlyAA757, since your trip is in December(the same time two of the first 73G's ordered by JI arrive), your schedule shouldn't change. I just mentioned it to Panaman because his flight is in Feb. 2000.

Well, let's just say that the RDU-MSY run is doing TOO good, but that's because they are using the CRJ. Currently all new routes are utilizing the CRJ. Midway did say that the 73G's will help replace the F100 and add capacity, so if you hope enough maybe it might just come your way.
