As long as I can get EQM's on all YX flights, I am a happy camper!

The real question for people ex MKE is how are the fare prices holding up with all these changes?

Now if only they'd offer reciprocal club access. I grant that there is a WC in MKE but when flying Midwest its in the wrong wing.

Yeah, but how many clubs does YX have? It may not be worth it for NW to open all of their clubs up to get just the one YX club in return.

Do we know for sure if EQS/EQMs can now be earned by flying Midwest with this new agreement?

EQM/EQS on YX actually predate this agreement. They have been in effect for awhile.

I will second that!!!!! I believe that EQM's on YX have been in place since October or November 1, 2007.

Fare's on YX to certain destinations seem to be pretty competitive of late.

I thought that the reciprocal club agreements had some sort of 'settlement' arrangement that would negate this issue. From what I understood each club totals up its visitors from the other network and at some point they compare and whichever one is higher pays some sort of fee.

Drat - thought of one more thing - does Midwest have a priority check-in and if so, can we use it now?

I'm flying them for the first time pretty soon.

I didn't think that YX had a first class cabin until I looked at their MD-80 seatmaps. Turns out that those aircraft have 3 rows each.

No, unless something is changing no NW elites get free upgrades. YX own Executive Elite do not even get free automatic upgrades. YX is selling for $60 or 65/each way and you're getting extra legroom with a first class seat...no free meals or free alcohol (at least on the flights I've done).

I'm from MKE and in the old days YX was amazing. YX always had 2-across first class/leather seats, full meals in coach (we're talking steak, lobster, shrimp, prime rib etc)...then only their Signature service offered 2x2 leather with BOB meals, while some planes were saver service w/ 2x3 regular coach seats with extra legroom...Effective May 2008, all planes will have 3 rows of first class and the rest 2x3 regular coach seats but you still get the free chocolate chip cookie in-flight.

Surely the 717 will stay 2x2, right? I fly them DCA to MCI about 3x a year when I don't tack on another trip. I'd hate to lose those comfy 2x2.
