Yay! Program "enhancements" for midwest

So, being based in MKE I've been considering switching over some of my flying over to an airline that provides non-stop services, so I've been tracking changes to the Airtran and Midwest (and Frontier) programs lately to determine which if any, I'd want to go with.

I noticed today that the elite description on the midwest website now looks completely different (and very much like the frontier website) including the following...

"Tier qualification requirements are based on travel in a calendar year. To qualify for Midwest Miles Aspire, you need 15,000 flight miles or 20 flight segments. For Midwest Miles Executive, you need 25,000 flight miles or 30 flight segments."

The website doesn't describe the differences very well, like whether executives still get 2 bags per person on the PNR, so I'm wondering if there are any current elites out there who have gotten any additional emails or details...

Refer to the new spreadsheet on the YX site, for a clear explanation of benefits:

Executives still get 2 bags free...There was a thread a while back that discussed the introduction of the "Aspire" lower end program, I do not believe that "Aspire" members get the 2 bags free, but dont quote me.
