I'm not familiar with the exact methodology used by the survey, but it seems skewed towards larger/better known carriers. For example, Midwest clearly offers a superior coach product to American, Delta or United, yet they are ranked fourth. I wonder whether the survey asked readers merely to vote for their favorite airline, or whether it actually asked them to rate carriers on some kind of scale?

I was told by someone that Midwest Airlines doesn't exist any more. Is this true?

S_Air, they used to be called Midwest Express and I think they have renamed to Midwest Airlines or something like that....

If you are talking abt Midway, I think they went bankrput but not too long ago resumed ops?

Congratulations Singapore Airlines! And they definitely deserve the accolades. They are a tremendous airline. I would fly them anywhere I could!

As to Midwest Airlines, it is still flying is an excellent airline, the best in the USA. I think you were thinking of Midway Airlines which has ceased operations. Actually I enjoyed flying them also.

They are good...but still grossly overrated in most categories.
I'm still waiting for the new Biz Class to be rolled out at a reasonable pace.

I am flying LHR-SIN in January....I assume it is available on those flights (?).

Congrats to them nonetheless.
