Midwest’s board, which has acted like a bunch of children in regards to AirTran’s merger offer, looks like it might be growing up. The company announced that the board is forming a special committee (something they should’ve done months ago) to seriously consider the offer. Midwest is a public company, and the board owed it to their shareholders to actually not dismiss the offer out of hand and simply focus on keeping their board seats. Pathetic. Anyway, I bet this thing goes through by the end of the year.
