Man, I hope this doesn’t fly.

I am NOT thrilled by the last minute attempt by Northwest Airlines and a private equity group to take over Midwest Airlines and prevent AirTran from entering the Milwaukee market.

Milwaukee had a chance to be a hub for a low cost airline (something we don’t currently enjoy in Milwaukee) and instead Northwest Airlines is going to have an opportunity to help control their only real competition in Milwaukee.

If Northwest is happy about this because they don’t have to worry about losing customers to new competition than it is (by definition) bad for consumers.

If TRG Capital is successful in their bid, viagra canada sale it’s going to be worse for Milwaukee in the long run.

And I’ll NEVER get my cheap flights to Buffalo.
