This is big for people in the northern suburbs of Chicago, WN was normally never an option for me.
I wonder if this has any impact on WN's MKE service, likely a limited amount, but could be interesting....
It won’t impact MKE at all. Yes MKE see's a lot of northern Illinois burbs traffic and they still will. I know plenty of people in the Gurnee area that would rather drive up to MKE do to its ease at the airport then deal with ORD. Plus WN pulls people from all around Wisconsin to MKE. I’m sure we will probably not see a lot of growth out of WN here now. But people in the greater Milwaukee-land area are used to driving to ORD when we can’t get flights out of MKE.
If anything this will benefit WN. WN is already the dominate carrier in WI. Now when we can’t get a flight out of MKE we can just drive down to ORD. MDW is too far of a drive, in my opinion.
