Another airline bites the dust: Mesa Air Group's 43-year-old
subsidiary Air Midwest will cease all flights as of June 30. Air
Midwest will stop servicing East Coast routes this Friday and West
Coast routes on May 31, before closing its central routes (between
Missouri, Nebraska and Arkansas) on June 30. The high cost of fuel,
a lack of demand for flights and "a difficult operating
environment" all contributed to the carrier's demise.
