AA, NWA Offer $118 Fare From NYC-Milwaukee, Midwest Retaliates!

March 9, 2007

I love hub attacks, it’s quite fun to watch the airlines battle back and forth with ridiculously low prices.

Yesterday AA and NWA published $118+ fares from NYC-MKE.

Apparently Midwest didnt take too kindly to this attack on their primary hub as they have just responded with $118+ fares from into their hubs.
Give it until 4:00pm or so for these fares to take effect.
