I had booked our return flight for 1/24 back in July with AirTran because the price was fairly good, it was non-stop (DW does not like to fly & I always try to get non-stops for her benefit) and I knew Sunday afternoon flights out of Orlando could be costly if I waited to book. Original flight was to leave MCO at 3:05 p.m., at some point the flight was changed to 4:30 p.m. (did not really have any problem with this time change - but I never received any notification from AirTran on the change). When I checked my flight yesterday on the web-site, it was missing. I went into my account with Air-Tran and it now shows I am booked on a connecting flight through Atlanta leaving MCO at 4:03 p.m, with different flight numbers. Not sure when this happened, but have not yet received any notification from Air-Tran. I had paid for seat assignments - only 3 of the 4 tickets now have seat assignments for the first leg of the trip and no seat assignments for the second leg. There are two other non-stop flights that day - the AM will not work because we are getting off a cruise and the night flight arrives late and would be difficult considering the kids have school the next day. I would assume Air-Tran will let me change to any other flight that day or refund my ticket possibly. Southwest does have an afternoon non-stop flight, but it is now about $ 40 higher a ticket than what I had paid with Air-Tran. Am I pretty much stuck with keeping this changed flight with Air-Tran unless I want to pay $ 160.00 more to go with Southwest?
