Changing Traveler Perceptions Local news anchor: “Do we still have nonstop flights to LA? Newsroom staff said they didn’t think so.” “Since AirTran is gone, now it takes me 5 hours connecting to DC. Miss the nonstops.” “Too bad there isn’t a nonstop to Kansas City. My mom got stuck in Detroit changing planes.” “I wish we still had nonstop flights to Seattle.”
Changing Traveler Perceptions Can no longer find the vast majority of MKE flights on Orbitz, Expedia, Travelocity, etc. Those sites do not include Southwest, which is now the largest carrier at MKE
