Well heres my 2 cents worth for YX
Personally, i would prefer pitch over width, maybe thats just because im not very wide myself, lol.
definitely have the 717's replace all DC-9's. The MD
-80s will be around awhile in the 143/147 configuration serving vacation destinations through a new partnership with Mark Travel/Funjet.
IFE is definitely a good idea, something like Aa757first said would be great to have. YX
ditched their pretty good audio IFE a few years ago, i am not real familiar with the reason they did this.
And lastly, while restoring food service to what it once was would be optimal, i know its a long shot. I would like to see meals of that caliber for sale then, rather than 'in flight cafe' box lunch types. Their meals were incredible. On dinner flights back home to MKE
they served filet and lobster tail. No joke, and every flight over 1:30 had a full size meal, even red eyes had either pasta salad or similar on china, or a sandwich with full hershey bar. What im trying to say, is if im going to pay for food, i want to atleast think it is great.
Oh, and with the CC
cookies issue, they are warmed inflight, and served from a big pile on the cart. (atleast all flights get cookies now, in the days off full meal service, it was usually only lunch flights, which could be a bummer)
Midwest has avoided chapter 11 for now,a nd hopefully profitablitity comes soon...long live YX
. The last thing i want to see is the further development of this NWA 'mini-hub' here in MKE
. When northwest has a city in control, we know what happens, $$$ ^^^, and no cookies.
