I can't figure out how to include the picture, but here is a link to see a picture of the first 737-700, set for employee delivery on June 9 and 10.

You do realize this is an aviation forum, and this is, of course, the first 737 for AirTran.

Correction this is THE first "NEW" 737-700 for AirTran, they had the 737 model before.

Can't wait to see them with AirTran and it would be perfect for new B737-700 aircraft.

Jaysit...that was very funny. I am sure Air Tran will have no problem getting low paid workers to man their growing fleet...

Before complaingin about low-paid LCC employees, why don't you ask some what they think of the job?

Since you asked, I liked it fine. I just wanted to finish school.

Agreed, aviation is for people who love it.

You have to love it to go through all the crappy jobs and such that comes with working your way up to the front seat with an airline, ANY airline.

I'm working my way through flight school, gonna be burried in student loans when I grad, will be working a job flying checks, doing pipeline patrol, or God knows what. And you know what? Fine, I'm in it for the love of flying.

And I'd take a job with Citrus any day.

Look into law or med school if money's your thing.

It's awesome to see our new airplane. The employees of AirTran Airways are extremely proud of our 717's, and having the 737 back in our fleet can only make our sense of pride grow. Keep the pictures coming!!

Jamake1,

Thanks for the comments. The other employees of AirTran thank you as well for them.

Take a second and think about posting before you post something worthless, and something that has nothing to do with the overall subject.

Jamake1,
Go to hell. Both for you Valujet comment, and your sweat shop wage comment. I love working for AirTran, I'm 22 years old and a Supervisor, last year I pulled in almost $40,000, that doesn't sound like sweat shop wages to me. You can go back to being a perpetual college student, I'll continue to work for an airline that I love earning good money.

I love AirTran--it's been great experiences across the board. We're flying 3 students up to a camp next week because they don't get out of school in time to meet us and ride on the bus...guess who the first and only airline I checked fares on was...AirTran. Orlando to Atlanta...hands down it's AirTran every time.

Man I wish AirTran had some 757's though--I don't like 737's but I love the 717's

Lighten up dude! After all, this is an Airliners forum. Lots of people on here are interested in the 1st 737-700 for Airtran. Save your bashing for some other non productive part of your life.

You are acting like a bunch of hormonal women.

I, for one, am thrilled that AirTran is doing well. If a supervisor is making 40k, then it's not so bad.

Id have to agree with Airtran737. I to work for airtran and Iam not making sweat shop wages. Ive been with airtran almost 4 years and I really dont think its a bad place to work at all. Reason being JOB SECURITY I say this because there are not a whole lot of airlines out there making a profit and still adding planes and new service to new markets. As for Jamake1 and Jaysit you will find that with making comments like you made early will get you no where with the many aviation enthusiasts and professionals that are on these boards.

Hello

Jamake1 and Jaysit

I believe that's called "Being a little harsh!!" Besides, I bet working for AirTran is great.

Actually, any aviation job is great in my opinion  Laugh out loud. Good to see airlines buying new aircrafts.

BR715MECH and AirTran737,

Good job standing up for us LLC employees. I have been with B6 a little over a year and will probably pull in 30K+ this year. In addition I use my flight benefits to max. If that would have been considered taxable income I would have earned over 50K last year. I would say that almost every airline employee could make more money working elsewhere but it is more than the just money. It is also the flight benefits and the passion for the industry we are in. If you could care less about that there is really no reason to work in this industry.
