LesserEvil: I see Airtran complaints went down after being acquired by Southwest.
meyerkev: And then Delta is ALWAYS delayed in that 12 of the last 12 Delta flights I've taken were late by an hour or more. Including memorably, both my SF-> SLC flight and the connecting SLC -> SF flight.
The Bestest: LesserEvil: I see Airtran complaints went down after being acquired by Southwest.I've not really heard a ton of complaints about AirTran to begin with.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Hold on I have to pay by $50 complaint fee.
CatPeople: Spirit has a 40 lb weight limit on checked bags before $25-50 overweight fee kicks in. Other airlines have 52-55 lb limits. A 26 inch bag loaded is going to weigh over 40lbs guaranteed.Let's help their business model fail by avoiding them.
Tax Boy: why hasn't southwest dissolved airtran yet? they bought them years ago.

A 26 inch bag loaded is going to weigh over 40lbs guaranteed.Let's help their business model fail by avoiding them.Their business model is doing great in Europe(easyJet, Ryanair, etc).
epyonyx: I fly Alaska a lot. Planes are clean and roomy as you can get for someone 6'2". They're on time and service has always been decent. I use them to fly direct from Seattle to Dallas or to Boston.
TuteTibiImperes: If at all possible I'll always book with Southwest. They may not be the absolute lowest fare, but they're usually close enough, and they don't hit you with extra fees.Plus, I like being able to choose my own seat on the plane instead of having one assigned beforehand.
TheGreatGazoo: With AirTran you can get first class for something like $40 extra, and often free if you have a business account with them.
