Midway Airlines "Reconfiguring Fleet"?

Wed Mar 05, 2003 2:14 am

This is news to me, as taken off of Midway Airlines' homepage:

"Midway Airlines Corporation announced that it would temporarily suspend flight operations commencing at the close of business 17 July, while it reconfigures its fleet and adjusts its business model to take advantage of a new business opportunity with USAirways, Inc.

What does this mean from a spotting/photography perspective? What do they mean by "reconfiguring"?

Are there going to be new routes?

New paint schemes?

Different planes?

Will they still be flying into LGA?

Midway was supposed to have started operating under the U.S. Airways Express banner late last year using CRJs, but the funding had yet to be finalized, and the relaunch is presumed dead, as is Midway Airlines.
