4everRC - I don't see the MKE
service going into action because of several reasons. One being that NW
is already the largest carrier out of MSN
. Another is that YX
is one of the smallest carriers in MSN
has a 45 minute flight to MSP
and 1:05 flight to DTW
to connect to many more destinations than what MKE
has to offer for NW
pax. The flight to MKE
+ taxi times, your going to be from MSN
to Brookfield by the time the plane gets to the gate, by driving. Most pax that fly Midwest drive over to MKE
anyways that are from the MSN
area. Its a lost cause to try to drive YX
out of the MSN
market, because they've already pretty much done that in MSN
anyways. They used to bring in 2 MD80/DC9s a day and 4 B1900s or FRJs. Now its down to FRJs and B1900s with about 6 or 7 flights a day.
NW twisting the knife deeper into YX's back at MSN won't do them any good, since there is barely any O&D MKE-MSN pax. Its nearly 3 hours (check-in, security, taxi, flight, taxi, etc) from MSN-MKE by plane, while by car its a touch over an hour.
