    it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."
  • Stacy Anderson

    I totally agree--Frontier/Midwest/Republic/whatever is a far cry from the excellent service Midwest was known for. So sad. They don't bake the cookies on board anymore and don't know what Leinies is!

    The TSA people in concourse C are inept asshats. Try not to punch them in the face, even though they seem to be wanting it.
