OK, I should not post when I am tired
Jan 31 Midway is expanding after a little over a month of service sicne they shut down. They will be adding 2 flights a day from RDU to Reagan National in DC. They will be adding this service a week after US Air resumes service to Reagan, so, on yet another route, Midway is competing directly against a cartel airline.
It's all on www.midwayair.com.
And about Greensboro, I was merely complaining, because we haven't gotten our Reagan nat. airport flights back yet.

Sorry guys, I really hate Midway Airlines. Two good friends were CRJ Pilots for them who are now still out of work. Midway apparently handled its employees really well up until about Auguest.
I can't believe the approac Midway is taking with already expanding to more flights and a new route. Does anyone know if they are making a profit. Saying load factors of 85% is great, but what did they expect? With tickets being $50 per leg, how can the plane not be full. That is cheaper than driving and riding Amtrak to any of those destinations.
But we all know that load factors do not mean profits (GSO->CLE was always booked solid, but Continental never made a dime and stopped the route).
We'll see what happens. But the more I see Midway and what happened to CO Lite, I wonder how Fergusen has a job.
