“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

How do I love thee, airtran? Let me count the ways.
Sunday, August 29, 2010

Reason No. 1: They offer free coffee at some gates in ATL, though it is usually empty ... but the sentiment is good, right?

Reason No 2: They're not Delta, which has gone to hell in a handbasket ... although Delta still under-prices Airtran at times.

Reason No. 3: For a few bucks more you can get a better seat (more legroom or an aisle)....and you can do this at the kiosk.

Reason No. 4: They're not Delta.

Reason No. 5: For $49-$129, depending on the route, you can upgrade to business class.

Reason No. 6: They were the first to offer wi-fi on every flight.

Reason No. 7: They have the best inflight magazine published today. Very clever, lots of great info.

Reason No. 8: They let you fly stand-by without paying a fee.

Reason No. 9: They're generally nicer and happier than Delta folk.

Reason No. 10: They're not Delta.

And who can't like that small-A on the tail of the planes? I mean, it's cute and friendly and humble. I kinda wish they'd paint a face on it, though.
