History

Midwest Airlines began life in 1948, when Kimberly-Clark Corporation began providing air transportation for company executives and engineers between the company's Appleton headquarters and their mills. Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB) is an American corporation that produces mostly paper-based consumer products. ... Appleton is a city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin, on the Fox River, 100 miles (161 km) north of Milwaukee. ...


In 1969, K-C Aviation was born from this, and was dedicated to the maintenance of corporate aircraft. After the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, Kimberly-Clark and K-C Aviation decided to form a regular scheduled passenger airline, and out of that initiative, Midwest Express was started in 1984. President Jimmy Carter signs the Airline Deregulation Act. ...


The airline slowly grew by adding Douglas DC-9 aircraft to its fleet. Eventually, Midwest Express served most major Midwestern and Eastern destinations. Their longtime slogan, The Best Care in the Air, represents their inflight product. For many years, all flights featured 2-by-2 leather seating, ample legroom, and inflight meals and cookies. This made the airline popular with business travelers. In addition, Midwest Express operated a sizable executive charter operation with a specially-configured DC-9. The Douglas DC-9 is a twin-engined jet airliner, first manufactured in 1965 and, in much modified form and under a succession of different names. ...


In the 1990s, Midwest Express began adding McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft to their fleet. The airline experienced steady growth along with continued profitability. Midwest Express also started their own regional subsidiary, Skyway Airlines, The Midwest Express Connection, to provide commuter airline service to small communities in Wisconsin and the surrounding region. Kimberley-Clark relinquished its ownership in two initial public offerings on 22 September 1995 and 8 May 1996.[1] The Douglas DC-9 is a twin-engined jet airliner, first manufactured in 1965 and, in much modified form and under a succession of different names, still in production today as the Boeing 717. ... Skyway Airlines is a subsidiary of Midwest Airlines that feeds Midwests hub at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee, Wisconsin under the trade name Midwest Connect. ... A Commuter airline is an airline that flies to smaller communities, often linking smaller communities to a larger regional hub. ... September 22 is the 265th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (266th in leap years). ... 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... May 8 is the 128th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (129th in leap years). ... 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...


After fourteen years of profit-making, Midwest Express was affected with serious financial problems after the September 11 Terrorist Attacks. To return to profitability, the airline made major changes to its product. First, they reconfigured some MD-80 series aircraft into a new 'Saver Service', featuring cloth coach seats in a 2-by-3 arrangement. Saver Service, while decreasing the width of the seats, continues to feature ample legroom. This service is offered from their Milwaukee and Kansas City hubs to leisure destinations such as Florida, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Phoenix on McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft. The airline's Signature Service was also affected by the financial difficulties. The signature gourmet meal services, which had been served on china after being cooked onboard, were discontinued in 2002. The World Trade Center on fire The September 11, 2001 attacks were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001. ... The Douglas DC-9 is a twin-engined jet airliner, first manufactured in 1965 and, in much modified form and under a succession of different names, still in production today as the Boeing 717. ...


In 2002, the airline made another major change, shortening its name from Midwest Express to simply Midwest. A major reason for the change was the modern association of 'express' with a regional airline, which Midwest was not. At the same time, Midwest's commuter airline subsidiary changed its name from Skyway Airlines, the Midwest Express Connection, to Midwest Connect. In a move to save money on jet fuel, the airline accelerated the replacement of DC-9 aircraft with the Boeing 717. It was also announced that select MD-80 aircraft would leave the fleet. Regional airlines are a type of airline service that is intended to feed a larger airline or larger aircraft. ...

Midwest Connect is the name given for short connecting flights operating under Midwest Airlines. ... The Boeing 717 is a twin-engine, single-aisle jet airliner. ... The Douglas DC-9 is a twin-engined jet airliner, first manufactured in 1965 and, in much modified form and under a succession of different names, still in production today as the Boeing 717. ...


In May 2005, Midwest announced a new buy-on-board meal service for customers. The new program is a step up from the previous 'In-flight Cafe' and features chefs and inspiration from the renowned Mader's restaurant. They also bake chocolate chip cookies on the plane and serve them warm.


Midwest has become the longstanding largest operation at Mitchell Airport and serves 21 cities non-stop (serving San Antonio only through Kansas City), while their regional partner Skyway Airlines, operating as Midwest Connect, serves nearly 30 destinations throughout the Central United States. Since the late 1990s, Midwest has built a focus city at Kansas City International Airport, where they presently operate nonstop service to 13 cities across the country. Skyway Airlines is a subsidiary of Midwest Airlines that feeds Midwests hub at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee, Wisconsin under the trade name Midwest Connect. ... Midwest Connect is the name given for short connecting flights operating under Midwest Airlines. ... Kansas City International Airport (IATA: MCI, ICAO: KMCI), originally named Mid-Continent International Airport, is a public airport located 15 miles (24 km) northwest of the central business district (CBD) of Kansas City, in Platte County, Missouri, USA. In 2006 10. ...


On May 23, 2006, Midwest Airlines accepted one of the last two Boeing 717s delivered in a ceremony with AirTran Airways, who accepted the other 717. With the closure of the assembly line in Long Beach, California, this marked the end of commercial aircraft final assembly in California and the closure of the former Douglas commercial jet assembly facility. Large military jets are still produced in Long Beach, but it is expected to end in a few years when C-17 production ends.

Starting June 18, 2007, Midwest Airlines will launch nonstop service between Milwaukee and Seattle/Tacoma. The Milwaukee-Seattle/Tacoma service will operate as Midwest Airlines Saver Service. Daily flights will include a mid-morning departure from Milwaukee and an early-afternoon departure from Seattle/Tacoma and will allow customers to make convenient connections via Milwaukee to other cities in the Midwest route network.

This is due to the focus on the customer and the superior product that Midwest has in the marketplace.

Proposed AirTran / Midwest Airlines Merger

In December 2006, AirTran Holdings Inc. -- owner of AirTran Airways -- made public that in December 2005 it had approached the Board of Directors of Midwest Air Group -- owner of Midwest Airlines and Midwest Connect -- and had asked the board negotiate a sale of the company. That AirTran offer in 2005 was rebuffed by Midwest's board, which also rebuffed a second offer in late 2006. In December 2006, AirTran disclosed the rejection of both offers in hopes of bringing shareholder pressure on Midwest's board to reconsider, which the board recommended that shareholders reject.[2] AirTran Holdings NYSE: AAI is an airline holding company. ... AirTran Airways (NYSE: AAI), is a low-cost airline based in Orlando, Florida, USA and is a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings. ...


On January 11, 2007, AirTran sweetened its offer for Midwest Airlines to $13.25 a share from $11.25 a share and AirTran took its renewed bid directly to Midwest shareholders, bypassing Midwest's board of directors. The offer expires on April 11, 2007. As of April 2, 2007 the offer has been increased to $15.00 per share, in what AirTran calls its final offer. [3]


In response to AirTran's overtures, Midwest Air Group has stated publicly that it believes that it can maximize shareholder value as a stand-alone company. Midwest Air Group has said that the latest AirTran Airways proposal rejected by its board of directors significantly undervalued Midwest and did not reflect the long-term opportunity inherent in its strategic growth plan. The company also has reiterated that its strategic business plan will offer superior value to shareholders by capitalizing on current industry conditions while remaining true to Midwest's commitment to customer service excellence.


In early 2007, Midwest has announced the initial components of its long-term growth plan, which is designed to increase capacity 15% in 2007 (averaging 10% per year over the next three years) and provide improving levels of profitability while further enhancing service to its customers.


2007 Initiatives

2007 initiatives include:

  • An agreement with SkyWest Airlines, Inc. to operate 50-seat regional jet service from Milwaukee and Kansas City beginning in April 2007. Flying as Midwest Connect, the SkyWest jets will allow Midwest to add new destinations, increase frequency on existing routes and upgrade several regional routes to all-jet service.
  • The addition of two MD-80 series aircraft to the Midwest Airlines fleet expected to go into revenue service by mid-2007, and one Fairchild 328 Jet 32-seat regional jet to the Skyway fleet which went into service on February 2, 2007.
  • Reconfiguration later in 2007 of Midwest Airlines Saver Service aircraft -- which feature two-by-three seating on flights to leisure destinations -- to add several rows of the airline's two-by-two Signature Service seats to further differentiate Midwest's product in the marketplace.

According to Midwest, the expansion plans are slated to result in the addition of at least six new destinations and as many as 12 new routes in 2007, as well as an increase in employment of approximately 8% throughout the year - not including SkyWest staffing to operate the 50-seat regional jet program. The Douglas DC-9 is a twin-engined jet airliner, first manufactured in 1965 and, in much modified form and under a succession of different names, still in production today as the Boeing 717. ... 1944 Fairchild Argus III Fairchild was an aircraft and aerospace manufacturing company based at various times in Farmingdale, New York, Hagerstown, Maryland and San Antonio, Texas. ... The Fairchild-Dornier 328 family of commuter airliners is comprised of several related models, all based upon the basic turboprop-powered 328. ...


Longer term, Midwest says that it is conducting a strategic review of other significant value-enhancing opportunities -- including replacement of its MD-80 fleet and additional interior reconfiguration of its aircraft.

Incidents and accidents

  • On 6 September 1985, Midwest Express Flight 105 crashed upon takeoff from Milwaukee. This is Midwest's first (and, as of 2007, only) fatal accident, when a Douglas DC-9 of the airline crashed while taking off from Milwaukee, bound for Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport. According to NTSB reports, the crash was caused by improper pilot reaction when the plane's right engine failed due to stress corrosion cracking. The improper flight control inputs caused an uncommanded roll and accelerated stall. The 31 people on board died.
  • On 20 December 2005, Midwest Airlines Flight 210, a Boeing 717, experienced an issue with its landing gear while taking off from Logan International Airport. The aircraft, originally bound for Milwaukee, circled the airport for about two hours to burn off its surplus fuel. Ultimately, the aircraft returned to Boston Logan Airport and landed safely with only a few sparks trailing from the right main landing gear. The cause of the failure was a faulty wheel bearing in the aircraft delivered by Boeing only a month earlier.

At the beginning of Midwest's life, they flew only DC-9s of the -10 and -30 series. These planes were painted in a dark blue on the upper half, and white on the lower half. The two were separated by two white , a blue , and a red cheatline, which ran up the trailing edge of the tail. The engines were white, and on the tail was a bold 'M' and a script 'E', representing Midwest Express, and the way the titles were printed. This scheme can still be found on one Beech 1900D of Midwest Connect, sans the 'M E' on the tail.[6] Image File history File linksMetadata Midwest_717_N905ME_025. ...

In the early 1990s, the airline started to add DC-9-80, more commonly known as the MD-80 or "Super 80", aircraft to their fleet, initially in the same livery. It wasn't until the mid-90s that they changed the paint scheme. The top half of the aircraft remained blue, but the bottom half was repainted grey, along with the engines, and they were now separated by a gold, white, and red cheatline. The tail logo also took minor changes, adding a circle around the lettering and a gold, white, and red stripe from the circle to the leading edge of the tail. Despite the unchanged lettering on the tail, the titles on the fuselage were changed to all bold letters, rather than the script "Express" titles.[7] MCMXC redirects here; for the Enigma album, see MCMXC a. ...

The McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and McDonnell Douglas MD-90 are twin-engine, single-aisle jet commercial aircraft derived from the DC-9. ...


In 2003, Midwest Express Airlines began to create a new identity, as the first Boeing 717s were being delivered, and the DC-9 aircraft were being retired. They started with chopping the "Express" out of their name (and thusly, off of the fuselage), and they designed a new logo which would help point them out as a representative of Milwaukee. The result was a logo that looks much like a wing, with a small 'M' inside of it. However, if the logo is turned on its side, it bears a resemblance to the Milwaukee Art Museum, designed by Santiago Calatrava, which was being constructed at the same time. The Art Museum has risen out as an icon of Milwaukee, and so the new Midwest Airlines felt this would be a good representation. Along with this new identity came a new livery. The bottom of the aircraft remained grey, while the top were repainted in a lighter, deeper blue, with essentially the same gold, white, and red cheatlines separating the two. On the lower half, there was also a blue swoop, starting at the front (looking much like another stripe), getting larger as it goes back, until it covers the whole tail section. The engines on these planes were painted in the same blue color, with 4 gold rings on the port engine, and 3 on the starboard. This was meant to represent the ranking of Captain and First Officer, along with where they sit. An error, however, occurred in the painting of the livery in the first aircraft. Boeing misunderstood the livery, and N902ME was delivered with 4 rings on both engines. The aircraft remains that way today. All other 717s delivered were painted correctly, along with one MD-80, registered N813ME (and two more to join the fleet in 2007). All other remaining MD-80s have a sort of hybrid livery, combining the lighter blue, light gray engines/belly and stripes of the old Midwest Express livery with the current logo and titling of Midwest Airlines.[8] 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
