I read a few weeks ago that Airtran was talking with Louisville about a possible return to the market? Anyone have any insight on this?

We really need some competition on the SDF-ATL route. DL's $284.00 fare isn't exactly a bargain.

I think it's possible. AirTran will probably be returning to more of the cities that were dropped over the years (some ex-VJ, some were dropped in the years follwoing the merger). So far, they've returned to the following cities:

TOL (later dropped again)

I think that SDF, IND, and possibly RIC and BDL could be the next former cities that see service by the airline return.

Actually, $284 doesn't sound that bad, considering flying BDL-MCI in early January would cost me $350, minimum, and I can think of worse routes to fly, cost-wise.

Still, I can see FL in the SDF-ATL market, especially if they go in with 2 mainline and 1 or 2 JetConnect flights. Later, BWI service could be initiated (though this would be after other BWI service was added, like CAK and PIT).

I'm just speculating, but with the 737s coming on line next year and the additional 717s still rolling in, there is room in FL's structure to grow to cities with 1.4M people in their GMSA.

Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it in summer school.
