Airtran has been trying to take over Midwest and has revieved 56% of stockholders wanting this to happen (their stocks would rise, which is why the number could be so high). Midwest responsed by partnering with NWA.
Airtran claims: Milwaukee very underserved, and they would bring lower fairs and enhanced/increased service
Midwest claims: way better service, better seats. Airtran’s claims of increased service are often not furfilled even close, many proposed routes are unrealistic with 3000% seat gains
other: Zagat ranked Midwest #1 us airline, followed by jetblue
