Great report. I would love to fly also with Midwest Express. I heard only good things about them. I think they are the best US airline. I have been twice to Omaha, and I saw their planes at Omaha airport. Next time when I will fly again to Nebraska I will try to use Midwest Express. Because I have never flown Midwest Express is American Airlines my favourite US airline. They are also good. But Midwest Express is a class of its own.

Good report Kevin.

I love MidEx, being an Omaha resident.
I flew MKE-DCA about 7 weeks ago on a breakfast flight and was served a full hot breakfast. They even serve hot meals on the 50 minute OMA-MKE flights. This is truly what airline service should be.

Nice report. I hope I have the chance to fly this airline some day, probably not. We always fly AA. Any way, hope you have a great trip and cant wait to hear the return portion.

Okay report, it could use a little narrative detail though.

Nice report. I too have yet to fly on MidEx, but maybe someday if travelling to the West Coast or something. I'm sure the service makes up for having to make a stop. Look forward to hearing more.

When he says the new colors, I think he means the current color. They only have 1 or 2 planes left in the old colors.
