 Northwest Airlines - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Northwest Airlines (IATA: NW, ICAO: NWA, and Callsign: Northwest) is an airline headquartered in Eagan, Minnesota, with three major hubs in the United States: Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, and Memphis International Airport.
The airline's operations were expanded to smaller cities in the region by the end of the decade.
The airline took delivery of the Boeing 720B in 1961, and in 1963, with the new Boeing 707, and the retirement of the last propeller aircraft, Northwest became the first U.S. airline with an all-turbofan jet fleet.

 Northwest Airlink :: Operated by Pinnacle Airlines Inc.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Pinnacle Airlines, formerly Express Airlines I, was founded in 1985 with the intent of offering regional airline passenger feed to a code sharing, major airline’s hub.
Republic’s dilemma was that its fleet of fifty-seat Convair CV-580s and ninety-seat DC-9s could not economically serve the smaller communities.
Northwest Airlines, which at that time had its own code sharing network of regional airlines operating as Northwest Airlink, was more than happy to incorporate the existing Express I into its network.

 Regional carriers reshaping air travel
The airline industry always has been volatile and competitive -- the closest thing to outright war, one analyst calls it -- but some say this transformation is on par with the change from propellers to jets.
Republic's fleet has grown from just a handful of jets to more than 80 and is expected to reach 129 by October 2005.
Republic Airways Holdings, the parent company of Chautauqua, for example, has grown from 680 employees in 1999 to more than 2,100 now and should be approaching 3,000 by the fall of 2005.

Republic was a Wisconsin corporation with its principal place of business in Minneapolis which was merged into Northwest.
During the relevant tax years, both commercial airlines operated in various states, including Illinois, and were required to apportion their business income to Illinois using the one-factor apportionment formula for transportation companies set out in section 304(d) of the Act.
We are also aware that the exclusion of flyover miles from the numerator of the apportionment fraction increases the number of "nowhere miles" (miles not apportioned to any taxing state), thus increasing the gap in taxation of airlines.

It is important to note that the pilots’ recent approval was based largely on job security concerns attributed with your plans to start Republic Airlines under a Jets for Jobs Agreement with US Airways.
As you are aware, we are involved in a concentrated effort against Chautauqua Airlines parent company, Republic Airways Holding, Inc. to stop the establishment of Republic Airlines from operating under a Jets for Jobs Code Sharing agreement with US Airways.

These are the "regional" airlines that take you from places like Medford, Ore., to United's hub in San Francisco; Little Rock, to US Airways' hub in Charlotte; or Wichita, to Continental's hub in Houston.
Regional airlines share several commonalities: 1) they usually operate jets or turboprops with less than 100 seats, 2) they usually fly short hops, and 3) they primarily serve as feeder carriers to the larger "legacy" airlines.
America West pays those airlines a fixed monthly stipend plus additional funds based on the number of flights flown and hours of operation, as well as a percentage of the revenue from the flights they operate under their code-share agreement.
