Midwest continues fight against AirTran
Despite what outside experts say, Milwaukee's Midwest Airlines insists its battle to stay independent is not over.
AirTran of Florida announced major progress Thursday in its long-running takeover bid. It said 57 percent of Midwest stock has been pledged to that company.
Brian Nelson of Chicago's Morning Star Corp. says a takeover by AirTran is inevitable. But Carol Skornicka, Midwest vice-president, said the pledges amount to nothing more than a straw poll.
