    Pros: Comfortable, spacious
    Cons: First class expensive as most are

    Pros: Non-stop service, free snacks, friendly staff (most of the time), average cost
    Cons: cramped planes, charges for bags.

    Summary: Midwest Express offers the only non-stop flight from Nashville to Milwaukee.  Since my wife's family lives in Milwaukee, we often fly Midwest for the convenience.  In most cases, the flight attendants and staff are very friendly and offer good ... read more

    Pros: Attentive attendants who extend unmatched inflight service. Chocolate chip cookies!
    Cons: As typical with a regional airline, Midwest has a limited route map.

    Summary: For many years, I've remained a loyal, card-carrying member of Skymiles, Delta Airline's frequent flyer program. And other than a round-tripper on AirTran, I've flown ONLY Delta to the tune of some fifty flights over the past five years, ... read more

  • No exceptions made in their horrible anti-customer policies

    Pros: I didn't get far enough to experience any of these
    Cons: Their unexplainable policies are horrible. Refuse to work with you.

    Summary: Everything I read about Midwest on their website was all about their customer service and how great they are. Lies. I flew to Michigan for my wedding after getting laid off and decided that I would spend more time in Michigan rather than flying ... read more

    Pros: Good prices
    Cons: Horrible seats, limited routes

    Summary: Once upon a time, Midwest was my ideal carrier. Wide, comfortable seats, absolutely wonderful and truly "midwest" staff, and great prices. Those days are over. I heard that Northwest bought them out, which is a total loss. They've lost their personal ... read more

    Pros: At least your Midwest Miles can now be used on Northwest routes.
    Cons: Everything that was special about the airline is gone.

    Summary: Since Midwest airlines was bought out by Northwest last year they discontinued their, "Signature Service", which was the best thing they had going. It was all first class seating on select routes. I LOVED it. It's long gone now. They ripped out those ... read more

    Cons: Doesn't travel to that many cities.

    Summary: When I first boarded a Midwest Express plane, I knew that there was something special about this airline. They automatically asked me if they could hang my coat and store my luggage for me. I sat down in the big, roomy leather chairs and felt like I was ... read more
