Great report. I would love to fly also with Midwest Express. I heard only good things about them. I think they are the best US airline. I have been twice to Omaha, and I saw their planes at Omaha airport. Next time when I will fly again to Nebraska I will try to use Midwest Express. Because I have never flown Midwest Express is American Airlines my favourite US airline. They are also good. But Midwest Express is a class of its own.

Good report Kevin.

I love MidEx, being an Omaha resident.
I flew MKE-DCA about 7 weeks ago on a breakfast flight and was served a full hot breakfast. They even serve hot meals on the 50 minute OMA-MKE flights. This is truly what airline service should be.

Nice report. I hope I have the chance to fly this airline some day, probably not. We always fly AA. Any way, hope you have a great trip and cant wait to hear the return portion.

Okay report, it could use a little narrative detail though.

Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Nice report. I too have yet to fly on MidEx, but maybe someday if travelling to the West Coast or something. I'm sure the service makes up for having to make a stop. Look forward to hearing more.

Hey Kevin,

How much did you pay for this flight? i'm thinking of flying to Omaha someday to visit an unwary friend of mine.  Smile Great report. I have not yet to see the new colors of MidEx at DCA.

When he says the new colors, I think he means the current color. They only have 1 or 2 planes left in the old colors.
