AirTran Airways:  A Wonderful Way to Fly (Part 1)







All of the above apply to the wonderful way to fly on AirTran Airways, one of the world’s largest  low-fare airlines - employing more than 8,800 friendly professionals and operating more than 700 flights a day to more than 56 destinations.


Our destination was Baltimore.  We flew out of Boston in the world’s most affordable Business Class. Compared to others we have experienced this was a different Business Class, a unique one. And for the round trip flights about an hour each in duration it was perfect.


No food was served. No fancy packets were distributed that we usually throw away anyway. We did, however, have all we needed in very comfortable seats affording much leg and elbow room in two by two seats. And before we knew it we were on the ground.

Oh, yes we did get drinks and snacks. The “Eating Instructions” on the back of the Gourmet Pretzels is a nifty way to think AirTran:
  1. Think about our wonderful low fares . . . as you open the packet.

  2. Place a pretzel in mouth. With each crunch, be reminded of our low fares.

  3. As you swallow, remember again just how low the fares are.

  4. Repeat until pretzel packet is empty.

  5. Keep empty packet to remind yourself to book at for our lowest fares and no booking fees.

  6. There is so much more to say about AirTran – its ByePass Online Check-In, its AirTran Visa Card, its helpful attendants, its intelligent and well thought-through company vision . . .


But that will come in Part II of this series in a few months when we plan to fly AirTran to Florida.
