A Home Run:


The highly regarded Airline Quality Rating (AQR) once again selected AirTran Airways first overall for the fourth  consecutive year  as the top ranked airline.  

"Being rated the top airline in the AQR is a reflection of our 8,300 Crew Members' daily dedication to our customers," said Bob Fornaro, chairman, president and CEO of AirTran Airways. "It is particularly rewarding this year as we continue to prepare to join Southwest Airlines, pending regulatory approval, later this year. There can be no better validation of our Crew Members' focus on maintaining one of the best airlines in the industry than this honor."

A brand new baseball book “Remembering Fenway Park: An Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Boston Red Sox.”            A need to get down to the area of Fort Meyers, Florida and spring training.

Enter AirTran Airways who has the training site of the Sox as one of its newer destinations.

From New York City LaGuadia  Airport Business Class it was all systems go – efficiency, courtesy, professionalism from check in to on board attendants, to flight crew. And an added bonus was being in the company of so many members of Red Sox Nation who made AirTran Airways their choice of transportation.

And why not?

Affordable and no frills business and leisure class travel on over a thousand daily flights  has made AirTran a “player.” Experience as we did the world’s most affordable Business Class seats. These wondrous two-by-two supple leather seats offer stretch out room, a lot of privacy, priority boarding that gets you on and off the plane ahead of almost everyone else.

AirTran also has bragging rights to a highly “user-friendly” home page that connects you to some effective and useful time saving links: checking in on line 24 hours to 45 minutes before flight time, advance seat  selection options,  check bags before leaving for the airport option and more.

With all it has going for it – excellent customer service and one of the world's youngest all-Boeing fleets, convenience, low cost, professionalism throughout its operation, AirTran is the home run hitter of the airlines industry. Go for it!
