I grew up in Denver, and I always loved going to Denver International Airport and seeing the beautiful lineup of Midwest Airlines tails parked at Terminal A. Unfortunately for me, Midwest merged with Frontier in 2010, but hopefully we can still bring this beauty to Infinite Flight.
About Midwest Airlines
Midwest Airlines, founded in 1984, was a U.S.-based airline and, for a short time, an operating brand of Republic Airways Holdings. Midwest had their main hub located at Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport, with secondary hubs in Kansas City and Omaha. On April 13, 2010, parent company Republic announced that Midwest Airlines and Frontier Airlines would merge, with the Midwest brand disappearing in late 2011. At the time of the merger with Frontier, the airline operated a fleet of 5 Airbus A319’s, 15 Embraer E-170’s, and 10 Embraer E-190’s. (Wikipedia)
About the E-170
The E170 is the smallest aircraft in the E-Jet family and was the first to enter revenue service in March 2004. As of 2017, the E170 is largely out of production. The E170 typically seats around 72 passengers in a typical single class configuration, 66 in a dual class configuration, and up to 78 in a high density configuration. The E170 directly competes with the Bombardier CRJ700 and loosely with the turboprop Bombardier Q400. The jet is powered with General Electric CF34-8E engines of 14,200 pounds (62.28 kN) of thrust each. (Wikipedia)
