I have flown Air Wisconsin many times over the years between ORD and ATW, CWA, and GRB and am wondering what the airline was like before the United partenership? What aircraft did they fly? Destinations served? Staff? Inflight service?

Saab2000, how's the MX side of things going in PHL? I hope you aren't seeing too many of the little red and white stickers in the front office. Did I do oil checks on any of your PHL turns today?

I think they may have been a lunch customer for the 146

I'm really surprised nobody has mentioned the fact ZW operated a fleet of BAe-ATP's, which were eventually sent to operate for UFS.

I know you guys are working your a$$es off. Like everyone here. Seems like its an uphill battle. Maintainance is working very hard and not able to keep up. I am flying lots of airplanes with MEL deferred equipment. Thank god we are not taking short cuts. Always taking the high road. That is the way at ZW. But it is still frustrating. Sometimes no APU. Or Yesterday a PSU in row 10, meaning 2 seats were unavailable. Station downline didn't know and loaded 49 pax. Had to offload one. Sad. Why didn't they know? Not Maintainance's fault, that's for sure. But the ops leaves a lot to be desired.
You guys in MX are my heroes!!! That is the single toughest and thankless job in aviation. Period. Keep it up!!! We will become the best airline PHL has ever seen. I believe that

I wish Preston would have signed us up with American Airlines - would have been a much better turn out than this. I have to admit, I flew US today from DEN...they charged for everything - headphones to food. That is when I started to miss UA's service. At least the headphones are free!

In TOL we were one of the first to see the BAE146 of Air Wisconsin I beleive. I remember seeing them fly over our house on approach to TOL every day. I have so many postcards and even a BAE146 brochure that Air Wisconsin had printed showing off the features of their new airplane.

Didnt Air Wisonsin fly the 146 for AA at one point during the 80s?

Mx at Zw has always been and will always be great. I'm currently attending school to become an A&P mechanic. I've worked for Zw for two years now, and i would never work for another regional.

In fact, PIT has one of the best safety records in the country.
|Quoting Apodino (Reply 24):|
but the ramp in PHL reminds me too much of DGS, and they might even be worse.

.I rather enjoy the routes and passegners, but hate PHL!!
|Quoting Saab2000 (Reply 8):|
It is very tough at PHL right now. In fact, it is tough at all the hubs of US Airways except PIT, which is not a hub. They are great. But PHL is a disaster. It is truly embarassing
