Bankruptcy for Midwest Airlines?

Milwaukee World has posted a memo sent to the Association of Flight Attendants – CWA warning them that “bankruptcy filing cannot be ruled out within the next few weeks.”

Wah! I gotta keep spending those miles. This is getting old!

    Good luck if you are taking more than one person. I’ve accumulated over 400,000 miles on YX now and can’t get a ticket anywhere. I swear they’ve reduce the number of FF seats allocated to a flight to 2 0r less!

  2. We’re at about that, too – but I’ve been really lucky and found seats when we need them. It does help that I travel alone a lot.

    I do think I need to rethink the credit card, though. No sense racking up these miles if they could disappear. I enjoyed using the Capital One card in Europe (no international charges), so maybe I’ll switch to that.

    Yeah I am in the same boat on the card. No sense accumulating the miles, paying international fees and that annual fee, if I can’t use them. Its just hard, I’ve been loyal to them for 20 years and now feel somehow like I’ll get screwed in the end.

  4. Yep, it’s been a long and drawn out series of disappointments. Heck – I remember when they served wine with great meals! Then they gave up that glorious 2 x 2 seating… Now you are as well off flying whatever is cheapest because there are no amenities. (I don’t do the cookies.)
