Re: Midwest Express Partnering with Elite for Launch

Operating with CRJs really won’t help the image Midwest Express conjures. Every time I fly, I think of how nice the old YX was. However, airline startups are reliably unreliable. Plus, CRJs do not fly long distances and by in large are very uncomfortable. Given the current competition from WN and D...

There are so many CRJ-200s in storage that the service could get up and running much more quickly than starting an airline from scratch.
