Skyway Airlines, a small Midwestern commuter carrier, flew some planes with emergency landing gear that did not work, broken fuel gauges and improper parts, U.S. Atty. Jim Burns said. Five former employees at the airline's Rockford, Ill., maintenance facility were indicted on more than two dozen counts of fraud for lying on safety records and to federal inspectors to save money during a two-year period from 1990 to 1992, Burns said.

An airline with no middle seats and four-star meals on china plates might seem like a dream to business travelers fighting today's crowded skies. But it is reality on Midwest Express, which has been making money offering what most other airlines have taken away.

Mesa Airlines, which began a dozen years ago with a single five-seat aircraft, has become the fastest-growing regional carrier in the country by turning small planes into big profits. And it's poised to nearly double in size with the pending acquisition of WestAir Inc., one of the country's largest independent commuter operators. The WestAir deal would expand the Mesa network to 107 cities in 29 states, with hubs in Albuquerque, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Mo., Tampa, Fla., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland, Ore. "I never imagined 10 years ago that we'd have evolved to this point today," said Larry L. Risley, Mesa's founder and president.
