asked a pilot on a MKE-MSP run this summer and he said second hand 757's were the most likely. He said it would bring the CASM closer to where the company wants it for the saver runs.
Hope MCI-MSP in on the next expansion list

I think the proposed Bombardier C-Series would be ideal for Midwest to replace all it's aircraft.
It is supposed to feature 5 abreast seating, transcontinental range and low operating costs. With it's two sizes (110 and 135 seats) it could ideally replace the 717's, DC-9's and MD-80's and give them only one type to operate.

They are MD 81's. Heavier aircraft. If configured in Saver Service they would have weight restrictions constantly. Also they are gas guzzlers!

Side Note: a back issue article on Airliners magazine covering YX mentioned that there was a sizable ERJ-145 order for its Midwest Connect division. Any additional news or updates on that?

If Skyways gets Delta's former 328JETs, where will Skyways deploy on behalf of Midwest?
|Quoting PennPal (Reply 16):|
Why not ask Boeing to keep the 717 line open long enough to build the required amount of replacement aircraft that they need?? Since production hasn't stopped, why is this scenario not being considered???

Too bad the new Dornier company hasn't taken shape at all yet in europe,
