…except Midwest Airlines

Midwest Airlines deserves to be included in the phrase above whenever someone indulges in another rant about the decline of airline service.

The company seems to use a lot of Embraer planes, which have one or two leather seats on each side — thus, less crowding. Those planes have no first class, so regardless of where you sit, you are welcome to use the restroom in front or the one in back.

Refreshments? Yes, you can buy meals, but you are given a fresh chocolate chip cookie or two. If the flight is over an hour (or so), the cookies are baked on board, and the soft chocolate will smear your fingers.

The staff seem endlessly cheerful, so, yes — flight in America can be a pleasant and even delicious event.


About Carolyn

I live in Washington, D.C., write, teach, try to eat the requisite fruits and veggies daily, and avoid caffeine after 2 pm. I wonder about things a lot -- like why "pretty" means "pretty" and "not so much" and if I can ever perfect the single-portion, no-knead, daily baguette and how many people realize that Beau Brummel had a lot to do with our desire to bathe daily -- those of us who do in fact "take the daily."
