Yes, im actually asking about the warm baked cookies on every flight. I had a very loyal F9 customer telling me how sad he was to see the cookies go but how in the end he still loved F9 comfy cabin/in seat TV etc. He wasnt from MKE and i found myself and my aviation knowledge getting into a convo with him about the Midwest Express situation and how the cookies started there as they originally were a corporate airline with high level service and after the Republic fiasco the cookies had to go. We chatted some more and ended the call but i find myself wondering did F9 itself possibly offer warm cookies aside from Midwest? Clearly its a slow work day LOL

No. Midwest holdover.

I believe that my most recent one originated in the oven.

Quite frankly, F9's promise to keep the cookies was just them throwing fish at a bunch of barking seals (aka - YX's MKE travelers). I don't think you have to look much further to see why they decided to do away with them - your post pretty much sums it up. F9's customer base didn't really understand/appreciate the tradition of the cookies, so it didn't make much sense to keep them once MKE was slashed.

Back in the day - 1999 - Frontier did offer a cookie after the "dinner sandwich" on long flights - BOS-DEN, eg. They were good, individually wrapped, but they weren't warm.

I think they went away after 9/11 or thereabouts.

The cookies were a hallmark of Midwest's cabin service, especially during Midwest's heydey in the '90s, pretty much becoming symbolic with the airline.

When RAH merged YX into F9, they kept the cookies and it was mainly a PR move not only for MKE travelers but for Midwest employees. As a former Skyway employee, it really was sad to see YX die such a slow death, but it had been dying for a long time well before AirTran, Repubic, or Frontier entered the scene.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

I seem to remember some brownies were pretty good too. The F/As on the RON a/c at ATL would often give the FL rampers that worked the flight a sack full of them.
