I am trying to be patient, but really-how long could this deal possibly take to turn into firm orders. The announcement was in April 2001, it seems that almost a year is a bit of a stretch although I know that 9/11 had alot to do with things really slowing down.

Don't confuse Midway with Midwest Express. For the short time Midway served Dayton, travellers couldn't distinguish between the two to save their lives! Seriously though, I think ME has deferred the 717 orders until 2003 so they can return to profitability before receiving them.(I don't understand their rationale sometimes) I think they have mentioned this in some of their financial and performance releases. Skyway although will be receiving their 11th and 12th 328JET's and also the Embraer's should start arriving later this year. The Embraer's were slated to start arriving in April but I think it has been backed up a few months.

When Midway was serving ATL, Midwest Express did their ticket counter check in for them in the same line as theirs. Talk about confusing!
717s should still be coming in 2003. They have pilots in LGB doing who knows what. The EMBs will have to come soon to replace some DC9-10 routes (maybe?) which are slowly going to be retired. N400ME is now officially retired :,-)
