Sunday I was driving by MKE and I seen a UA Express E-70 taxing to a gate on the AA side of the terminal. Did UA change the equipment to either ORD or DEN?? It has been CR-2 or E-145 service for as long as I can remember... ANy help will be appreciated.

Regards,

The UA/CO timetable(s) shows all CR2s and ER4s from MKE, with the exception of one IAH flight on a CR7.

It probably was an equipment substitution.

That is what I thought.. Nice upgrade from a ER-4 or CR2 to an E70. The aricraft also went to the west side of the terminal. Opposite of the normal UA gates...

UA Express used an E-70 for one summer on two of their MKE-DEN flights but that was at least 5 or 6 years ago, so I would agree with FWAERJ it was an equipment sub for vwhatever reason .

DEN-MKE and ORD-MKE routes are all pro-rate skywest routes. Perhaps it was in for maintenance?

As an interesting note, I remember when UA had a 727 on SFO-MKE in the 1970s.

More than likely it was a diversion from ORD.

Speaking of UA at MKE, has it been decided which concourse the combined carrier will operate from?


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

Heck, I remeber when MKE-PIT was a 72S on UA back in the seventies as well. How times change.

They have had one there for quite some time to support Midwest and AirTran flying.

SkyWest has had a mx base in MKE since 2007 when the Midwest Connect flying started and continues to support the UAX, DLC, COEX, and code share with Air Tran flying. A diversion is very possible, but I've seen a lot of Republic/Shuttle airplanes that have paint jobs for one code share, minus any titles, as if it's being used for all the code shares or possibly getting ready to go to paint.

Must have been UA #3448 BOS-ORD operated by Shuttle America. Looks like it diverted into MKE Sunday night.

That must have been it. It was Sunday night when I was driving by around 6 ish or so.. I did not see any emergency vehicles around it. It taxied under normal power. Lets just hope it was not a medical emergency....

I saw it taxi into the international arrivals terminal area, then make a u-turn back out to the taxiways but stop on the tarmac near the international terminal. About five minutes later, there were a few emergency vehicles around it.

Weird thing is this isn't the first time I've seen a United Express E-170 operated by Republic on the ground at MKE so I thought it might be some weekend reduced frequency, increased capacity fleet management strategy for weekends.

It was a diversion, ORD was shut down for a short time due to weather.
