I am researching our upcoming Oct trip and I have no experience with Airtran (never heard of them) we used to fly Spirit or JetBlue. But they are offering the best rates and reasonable departure times to and from. I have read alot of negative reviews on other sites. *cramped/narrow seats *flight schedule changes (although since this is a smaller airport, maybe less likely?) *no e ticket *no ability to select seats unless you pay $5 pr person and even then you are not always allowed to purchase seats that are marked "open" online. *no food (does this mean no beverage cart?) If you have had a different experience please post.
