LIVE FROM SEATTLE! It’s Midwest Airlines!

April 4, 2007 at 1:23 pm 1 comment

I’m sitting at Tully’s Coffee shop, opposite Gate A9, in Seattle/Tacoma airport (SEATAC), using Tully’s complimentary Internet access. My Midwest flight leaves at noon — I’m heading home. Arrived on the inaugural Midwest Airlines flight to Seattle on Sunday — the first time we are serving this area. And it’s a terrific destination. People in Seattle are quite responsive to our service. Chatted with a couple of customers at the ticket counter who had never flown on Midwest, but were recommended to do so by family or friends.

What’s in Seattle? Let’s just ask “What’s NOT in Seattle?” I’ve been here 4 days, saw a lot and still have so much more to see. Downtown Seattle is very nice, walkable, clean and filled with great shopping which I’ll go into in another post.

The hotels are plentiful and we stayed in a very nice one, close to everything we wanted in the downtown area at a very reasonable price — $134/night.

Dining runs the gamut — as in any good city, but its Puget Sound location makes dining on fish quite reasonable. LOTS of fresh fish everywhere.

We drove up to the Woodinville wine country, an easy 25 miles NE of the city. Dozens of wineries to choose from. We visited two and both were great — larger wineries on expansive grounds, nice ambiance. I’ll tell you more in a separate post.

What We Didn’t Do — YET!
We didn’t get to explore the entire number of Woodinville wineries. Will do that. There are other wineries and the vineyards a bit further out of Seattle — 2-4 hours. Would be fun to explore one of those areas. We didn’t take a ferry to any of the islands surrounding Seattle — lots of islands, including the San Juan Islands. The islands offer a lot of sightseeing and most likely great places to stay. We didn’t head down toward Tacoma, either. 

A Taste of Seattle
What we got was a taste of Seattle and it was very good. I was really excited to be on our inaugural flight here and to finally get out to the Pacific Northwest. And I wasn’t disappointed. You won’t be either. And guess what? It’s didn’t rain a drop in 4 days here — sunny and reasonably warm — about 60 or a bit more.

Stay Tuned.
Over the next week, I’ll be filling you in on Seattle with new posts on what we saw, where we stayed, and where we went. If you want to fly out on Midwest, you can get flight information and fares here. Right now we fly nonstop out of Kansas City to Seattle. It’s an easy connect from the East Coast and from Milwaukee. But come June, Midwest will also fly nonstop to Seattle from Milwaukee.

    It’s great to see Midwest expanding its routes. We’ve recommended them to several customers recently as they serve many markets ignored by larger airlines that people want to get to… with exceptional customer service to boot!
