AirTran Airways: The Way To Go!

More and  more and in every way, AirTran Airways is proving the way to go, especially for air warriors like us who log so many miles in the sky.

This time around it was a combination trip: interviewing at the Red Sox spring training site in Ft. Meyers, Florida and stops at hotels in three different locales on the west coast of the "Sunshine State."

Our outgoing flight was from Boston via Atlanta and to Tampa. Coming back it was Tampa via Baltimore to Boston. We had flown America’s top low cost airlines before in highly  affordable Business Class and luxuriated in the lengthy  legroom, comfortable two-by-two seats, privacy, even free adult drinks.  This time, once again, the experience was  seamless, serene, satisfying Business Class. .

But even more important was the efficient service and the affability of the personnel of AirTran Airways whether on the airplane or at the counters in the various airports. They were consistently smiling, consistently concerned about what we and other passengers were doing.

In these down economic times, how satisfying to have an airline like AirTran around  providing excellent service and making one feel that he or she is truly getting a  good deal.

AirTran’s mission statement to “Be the best in everything we do every day" is met big-time.

We look forward to flying this special airline again.
