Williamson County Regional Airport

Wed Dec 17, 2003 3:37 am

OK, I do not want to offend anyone, and I am all for regional airports like this trying to expand passenger numbers, but ....

I am just now listening to WJPF radio via the web, and I just heard a commercial for Williamson County Regional Airport (MWA) in Marion, Illinois. This has to be the cheesiest radio commercial jingle I have ever heard! It sounds like AmericanConnection probably footed some of the bill for this. Is anyone from the MWA area on this board? I couldn't believe this!

Hey
I am from Carbondale, Il and I live 15 min from MWA, and I have not heard the commercial so I can't comment. However, u have not offend me. American Connection is just a name, however, its Corporate that does the actual flying for AA/American Connection. How does it go?

It's hard to describe ... I couldn't take a stab at it on this board, except that it keeps singing "Williamson County Regional Airport" several times. I'd just recommend listening to WJPF to see if it comes on.

I once got stuck at MWA for four hours for a weather delay. This was back when TW Express (Trans States Airlines) was serving the airport. I was bored out of my mind....

Cactusa319-

At least you flew into it. I never got to go to MWA.

I was scheduled to fly MWA-STL-OKC-STL-MWA. When I arrived to MWA I found out my STL-OKC was canceled, so i was re booked as MWA-STL-DFW-OKC-STL-MWA. Then when I arrived inot STL i found out my STL-DFW was delayed, long enuff id miss my connection in DFW, so i was swicthed again to a N/.S that left 4 hours later. Then i flew back home to STL. I arrived into STL to find out my STL-MWA flight was canceled, so......I had to have my dad drive all the way to STL to come pick me up...never again am I flying out of MWA........I'd choose STL over MWA any day, plus its ALOT cheaper to do just that.

ssides- I am hearing-impaired and cannot hear the radio well so thats why I asked about the radio. I have seen a billboard advertising such.

Yeah I flew in and out of there a few times back when I went to SIU. I used to get a free employee pass on Southwest, fly MDW-STL and then with an ID90 pass from Trans States, fly the Junkstream down to MWA. Only had a problem once and that was the four hour delay due to fog. I did hear that TSA had reliability problems and that Corporate had a much better completion rate. Guess not.
