Midwest Airlines eliminating routes

George Hobica, July 21, 2008
Fares from Washington DC, District of Columbia:

    In what is perhaps a harbinger of worse things to come, Midwest Airlines is cutting service to the following cities on Sept 8:

    • Ft. Lauderdale
    • Ft. Myers
    • San Diego

    Midwest Connect, their regional jet service, will discontinue flights to:

    • Baltimore
    • Hartford
    • St. Louis
    • San Antonio
    • Louisville

    Milwaukee-Orlando service will become seasonal, operating from October to April only.

    Previously, the carrier eliminated service to Austin, Charlotte, Colorado Springs, and Duluth.

    Midwest has asked its employees for substantial pay cuts.   We suggest that you purchase flights on Midwest with a credit card and complete travel on such purchases no more than 60 days from time of purchase, in order to be protected under the Fair Credit Billing Act.
