Why is Air Tran subcontracting some flights to Miami Air? I've noticed there are several routes out of ATL with 737-800s over the summer.

Additional Lift for the summer months only, One-time thing. Service from ATL to FLL, MIA others?

I'm assuming it's Miami Air crew and everything?

AirTran seems to do this quite often. It seems as though no other LCC's sub-lease as much as FL.

Back in the J7 days, they leased Paradise Airways 727's and Sierra Pacific 737's. Now they have Ryan International (A320) and Miami Air International (737-800). It has to be killing some of their profit. How do the AirTran crews feel about their work being outsourced?

I'm sure most employees are a) happy to have a job and b) know this is just temporary until FL can get more planes.

As an AirTran crewmember (9 years), I have no problem, knowing that it is part of a larger growth plan. The reason for the Miami Air outsource is simply to redeploy some 717s on the ex-jetConnect routes as AirWisconsin is phased out this summer. Once both AWAC and Ryan Int'l are gone, and we start taking nearly two aircraft a month next year (1 717 and 1 73G), there should be no more outsourcing.

Of course, if this included a DECREASE in flying for us, we'd be rioting and on strike, but since it's just temporary, and we're continuing to grow like a weed (900 new flight attendants to be added by years end!), we're fine with it.
