Can anyone sum up the future fleet plans for Midwest Express (or is it airlines now???).

If I remember right the had 20 717s on order and some RJs(ERJ-145?) on order.

What is going on with the 328 jets? Are they still being made?

YX doesn't plan for the future. It's that simple.

Midwest Express Airlines will officially become Midwest Airlines on January 1 2003 and Skyway will change there name too Midwest Connect on the same date. Midwest will receive there first B717-200 sometime in February of 2003 and the Midwest Connect will receive there first ERJ-140 sometime in the beginning of 2004. If I remember the Midwest Connect will receive 20 ERJ-140 and has options for 20 more. Skyway or the Midwest Connect has 10 328 jets and were supposed to get two more this year but the trouble that Fairchild-Dornier is having were are not going to receive those aircraft. I can't remember if they cancelled the rest of the orders for the 328 jets or not. I will try to find out some info and get back with you.

That's cool that they are expanding out of MCI to EWR, AUS and seasonal service to RSW. I hope there is more to come and looking forward to that. I work tomorrow so I will try to find out how many flights they will have a day too EWR, AUS and RSW. I just wish they would add flights out of MKE but that will come soon I hope.

Here's the press release about the new service to AUS and EWR

Midwest Express announces Kansas City service expansion


I always thought it was odd that Midwest Express served SAT-MCI but not AUS-MCI. Back before the dot com bust Ausin had a lotmore business travelers, whereas SAT had more lesiure traffic. I always thought Midwest Express would do well in AUS.

When Vanguard first started AUS-MCI service they began with two roundtrips, but had recently upped it to 3.

I wonder if Midwest Express will start MCI-COS?

Vanguard started MCI-COS December 20, 2001. It was originally 2x 737-200s, and in June it was upgraded to 2x MD-80s.

I've heard MCI-COS did extremely well for Vanguard, so I don't see why Midwest Express couldn't make it work.

I'd also expect MCI-DEN one day or another. Although the route does have a lot of competition from United and Frontier. However Vanguard did have 5 MCI-DEN flights so they were pretty strong in the market.

Hmmm...amazing how almost every discussion of new US domestic routes ends up becoming about COS!

People have been talking - nay - speculating about COS routes for the past year!
