Questions about airtran/sw change

We do not have sw out of Richmond, we have airtran and jetblue. I have used both and not much difference. I don't mind paying to get a assigned seat. When is sw taking over airtran? If I make reservation now and pay to get a assigned seat for nov, if sw takes over before them will I still get my assigned seat? Will sw change the flight schedule?

Please go to Southwest's web site; the scheduled dates for the merge and how it will work are explained there.

Southwest has already "taken over" AirTran. They are moving flights as each schedule release comes out, it's a gradual process that will be taking place through 2014. If your November flight is AirTran, it will stay AirTran.

It will still be airtran unless they change your flight...

I booked our flights in Dec for our June trip at airtran. I paid for seats. Recently they switched our flights going down and the first leg is now a SW flight. So we no longer have seats on this flight. We do still have them on the second leg. They wont allow me to do the early bird since I booked on airtran so I am hoping for the best to get to sit together since we have young children. The perk they tell me though is because the one leg is a sw flight now we wont have to pay for bags going down.
