Just thought I would start this thread, because of the lack of full service airlines. Will the demand for FULL SERVICE AIRLINES return even when the economy turns around?
Midwest Airlines comes to mind especially. They offered the best service in my opinion. Baked on-board cookies, comfortable seating, and meals on almost all flights. Legends, National II
, and Pan Am II
(mid 90's) all tried to follow the Midwest Airlines niche, but many failed. Those airlines utimately failed or downscaled their service.
It's amazing how the industry has changed! Consumers don't want airline food, magazines, ample pillows and blankets, and all the foo-foo that airlines once provided. It seems all they care for is low fare, bags at destination, on-time performance, and of course TV
. We all know American Society has to have the TV
as a distraction. Is it really true that most consumers no longer care to pay for all the amenities? Just a thought!
