My understanding is 44 flights per day will continue to operate out of MDW.Jump to post
a few facts....these routes were indeed announced weeks ago and ATA responded by addind new routes and frequency.As a matter of fact ATA has moved its ticket counters to <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym>'s old space because of expansion.

Who really knows ...
Out of <acronym title="Orlando - International (McCoy) (MCO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO</acronym> you can catch one to <acronym title="San Juan - Luis Munoz Marin International (SJU / TJSJ), Puerto Rico">SJU</acronym>, <acronym title="Chicago - Midway (MDW / KMDW), USA - Illinois">MDW</acronym>, <ac...Jump to post
