The UP - I picked ( by coincidence) the absolute last day to transfer AMEX points to Airtran before their um, relationship dissolved. The UP - The Flights choices weren't that bad - get there early afternoon, leave late. The DOWN - did find out & end up paying for seating assignments. but that's okay, wanna make sure we are together & at the front of the plane The DOWN - 3 times since booking in february, I've been notified that flight times changed...however, only by 5 to 10 minutes The LOOP - Today's change involved my 1st flight changed from 10:15 departure to a 8:30 departure with same connecting flight time out of Atlanta. IN a stunning move of my own I called & asked for an earlier connecting flight...and THEY did it without charging me... Cool beans...I , I mean "WE" get to the MOUSE 2 hours sooner. The BIG DROP - got the confirmation email - argh...they moved my first flight also. (nice lady on the phone didn't say ANYTHING about my 8:30 flight changing...but anyway we now leave at 6:15am!!! oh well, just going with it.... lol... I'm SURE the teenagers won't mind getting up that early to get to see Mickey 2 hours sooner. Never flown airtran before...I SURE hope their pilots fly better than the scheduling system....just kidding!!!! I guess they're just in flux after being bought out by Southwest? I sure hope so.... Meanwhile, I just sit here waiting for the next big UP or down..
