Do any of you think Midwest Express will be replacing their DC-9s soon. If so what will they replace it with? 717s? I would hope so. It would be great to see them get new planes and have In-Flight TV like JetBlue, Legend, and Alaska.

The 717 would be perfect for MidEx.
I read an article on them not too long ago where they stated that they would like to get some 717's. But the price was just a wee bit too high. If they can get them for about 2-3 million less apiece, they will most likely be ordering some.

Boeing knows MidEx knows the 717 is a PERFECT replacement for the 717 so it jacked up its rates. Now Airbus will get involved, Boeing will lower its prices, and MidEx will get what it originally wanted.
