I don't get it either. United does it for Madison. It's terrible having to connect to a bus or transfer at ORD. I've brought that up many times with Southwest. SFO, where i live is a major business destination. It doesn't make any sense

I still call it that. "Mitchell Field."

Looks like Southwest will resume its seasonal SFO-MKE nonstop service in a few weeks. I remain surprised that no airline is putting a regional jet on this route, year-round.

Not wanting to start another thread...Do airport hotel shuttles just do a continuous loop between the hotel and airport, or do we need to call for pick up once we arrive? we are staying at Super 8....Also, the airport train station looks like quite a distance from the main terminal - is Uber/taxi the best option to get from hotel to train station?

I'm not certain about the Super 8, or any other hotel. I'd suggest calling them to inquire. There is a continuously running shuttle to get to the Amtrak station (and nearby remote parking): https://www.mitchellairport.com/park...transportation

Thanks for the advice! Unfortunately living in New Zealand it makes it hard/expensive to call. Still waiting for them to email me back....

You need to call the hotel shuttles. I kept a card for a number of years but it's finally been thrown out since it's not likely to ever be of use again. It's basically one property company that owns 5-6 hotels so the shuttle is shared. Super 8 definitely was one of them.

I'd guess the shuttle will be happy to take you to train station but if not, definitely shuttle to airport, then shuttle to train station, will be free and easy. A taxi will likely be a crazy price for such a short distance.
