Yesterday, on the ground in DCA, an Air Wisconsin plane was clearing the runway. He was told to follow the Midwest E-170 to the ramp. He stressed "Follow Republic." Whoever he is, glad to see he recognizes that it is not Midwest.

As a former Air Wisconsin pilot and a furloughed Midex pilot I can honestly say that the vast majority at Air Willy are just as disgusted by all this. Midwest got the unlimited jumpseat pushed mainly because of all the displaced Air Wisconsin jumpseaters commuting to the East Coast. After all they are the only two Wisconsin based airlines and both groups of employees were hosed over by their management.
