What are your opinions of Midwest Express and Skyway Airlines? I think they are better than any other airline that exists.

Well, I'm definitely spoiled by Midwest Express. I have flown them on most flights I've taken out of Milwaukee, the city in which I have lived for the past 3 years. I've found their service to be unparalleled for the price you pay. My most recent flight was to San Diego with Northwest Airlines; the only reason I didn't take YX was because the return flight would have been a red-eye, which I don't handle too well. Now, I wish I had flown YX anyway. The two 757-200s I flew on were dirty and cramped, and the service was minimal. I found it hard to believe there was no meal aboard an evening flight of about 3.5 hours from Minneapolis to San Diego! Plus we had a half-hour delay going out of Minneapolis due to an oil leak in the port engine. On MidEx, I'd have been sitting in a wide, leather business class seat, sipping wine and dining on shrimp scampi, or something just as good. And I have never had a delay in MidEx.

From now on, I'll stick to Midwest Express!

Even though I am a fan of NWA, I will book on Midwest Express before any other airline. Midwest Express is simply the best. No other airline in this country could even come close to beating them.

Now heres a fine Commuter Airline. Try to get a flight with their D328 over the B1900. The B1900 is great, but there is no inflight service. On the D328 you will be treated to Meals and Cookies, depending on the length of the flight and time of the day.
