ATA to End Scheduled Service at Chicago Midway

ATA announced that after 16 years it will end all scheduled service at Chicago Midway airport by June, with domestic service being phased out in April.  Their acquisition by Southwest, fuel costs, blah blah blah all led to the conclusion that their aircraft are better served on charter routes.  They’ll continue flying from the West Coast to Hawaii, but that’s probably in jeopardy, too.

  1. Wow, that’s a shame.

    Some of my longest and most miserable delays were in Chicago on ATA. Just sitting on the runway with no end in sight, the pilot coming on every hour to tell us that the flight would takeoff in the next 30 minutes, then it wouldn’t, then he’d get back on and say the same thing…good times.
