AirTran is my new favorite airline. I flew them recently on a trip to Denver. It was weird, almost like a trip back in time.
First of all, the tickets were cheap. $300 to Denver? That's pretty damn good. They do charge $15 for your bag. But they'll waive that if you upgrade to first class, which costs $49 or $99, depending on the length of the flight.
Second, the staff are nice. They're friendly and happy to help and actually seem to like having you on board.
Third, the flights weren't full. I had empty seats next to me on both legs of my flights out to Denver.
And, as an extra bonus, they have XM Radio on board. Just plug in your headphones and listen away. The best part was that I was able to listen to Friday's Twins/Yankees game live. Sweet, even if the Twins got their asses kicked.
Well, I'm typing this on the plane. They're getting kicked right now. Maybe they'll come back. That's the fun thing about Spring Training; there's a new pitcher pretty much every inning. It's also the debut as Crede as a Twin. The move of Crede from the ChiSox to the Twins is a potential game-changer for the AL Central, even if he did just hit into an inning-ending double-play.
The only problem I had was that my rainbow luggage strap was lost on the trip out to Denver. It always gives me piece of mind that my luggage will stay shut as well as making it stand out at baggage claim.
