National Airlines is doing pretty good IMO. They have announced service to SEA, IAD, PBI (seasonal) and they will resume service to DCA soon. I think they are a long way from getting financially back on track. They have applied for a bailout loan from the US government. That application is still pending They currently have 18 757s (according to Bill Harms site) and they will be acquiring new aircraft. The inflight service on National is typical to Southwest, except on most National planes, there is some IFE. I flew LAS-ORD roundtrip in June and on one segment, there was no IFE and on the return segment there was so I guess you have to be lucky sometimes. The seating is very similar to AA MRTC. They are holding a bunch of interviews. In the National In-Flight magazine, they said they will be hiring close to 400 people for the Washington DC service. If you really want more information, I highly recommend the National website http://www.nationalairlines.com
(They don't update regularly though, unfortunately) and also the Las Vegas Sun newspaper http://www.lasvegassun.com
(They usually have an article on National at least once a week). Hopefully, they will make it through this tuff time and survive. While National is a small airline, they are vital to the Las Vegas economy. All the National flights I have been on (only 4), have all been full. But, my ticket was so cheap for the trip to ORD, (178 RT!!!!), it's hard to believe they are making any money, LOL
. I'm sorry, I can't remember the FA's uniforms (it's too late over here, I gotta be in bed!). I'll ask my bro tomorrow. Talk to you later!
