That service is supposed to start in mid-march, but I strongly advise against flying to this dump (ROC)   I think they're going to use a CRJ

Midway to my knowledge has return all the F100 and A320 to the lesser and has turn them self's in to a commuter airline with EMB145/EMB135 and I think you should see CRJ700's shortly

Actually, Midway is anything but a commuter carrier. Yes, they fly CRJ's, but they have no EMB-145's. They still have F-100's, and they have 737-700's on order that they will start getting this spring.

That is not the case at all. True JI has ordered CRJ-200s, but the airline found the A320 to be uneconomical and cancelled its order for 4 a/c. Consequently 15 737-700s were ordered to replace the F100s and provide for expansion. 2 further were ordered from lessors and these aircraft(N311/2ML) were just delivered.

Why did Midway order 737-700s. Especially when they are replacing F100s. Wouldn't the 737-600 or 717-200 be a better choice?
