Default Midwest Airlines Again Named #1 in Zagat U.S. Airlines Survey

Quote:
The 2007 Zagat U.S. Airlines Survey has rated Milwaukee-based Midwest Airlines (Amex: MEH) #1 in overall quality for U.S. economy service. It is the sixth consecutive time the airline has been ranked #1, garnering the top spot in every U.S. airline survey conducted by Zagat since the inception of the survey in 1990.

I read both the US and International survey results.

In regards to the best airports, it listed Denver and Detroit as # 2 and # 5. I must disagree with the people that 'voted' Denver and Detroit as the top airports.

In regards to the international carriers, I agree with the ratings based upon my experiences.

I imagine Detroit got the votes for the McNamera Terminal which I do think is a great facility. Unless you are using Northwest, you probably won't see it and may have a different experience. I'd certainly say it's one of the most improved facilities in this country.

Default Hooaah Midwest!

I second Zagat's rating of Midwest. Sadly, the airline buyout that resulted in NWA acquiring a piece of Midwest may only postpone the inevitable...AirTran was going to scrap Signature Service had they been successful in forcing a merger, and down the line Midwest might do that anyway. They are already removing a few rows of Signature Service and replacing them with Saver Service (2 x 3 with more legroom) on 717s, although on MD-8x aircraft they are replacing the first few rows of Saver with Signature seats.

I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Regarding DTW, I concur with Deano about McNamara Terminal. I wish it had more "mainline" shops, but there is a pretty good variety of shops to while away the time, two security points to avoid a jam at one spot, and people movers to get people from one end of the terminal to another. The NWA WorldClub in that terminal is excellent, too.
