TLH After AirTran

There was an interesting article about AirTran's departure from TLH in Sunday's Tallahassee Democrat:

http://www.tallahassee.com/mld/tallahassee/news/local/9236932.htm

I especially like the part where USAirways commented that they contacted the City stating that they will re-structure their fares to/from TLH. Sure they will! I am sure under the new plan TLH-WAS advanced purchase fares will be $500 instead of $250.

I hope fares stay reasonable to/from TLH. I have lived here for six years and before AirTran came to town, fares were through the roof.

Delta has been flying 738s in here from ATL. I wonder if those will continue or if they will be downgraded to MD88s.

They are probably talking about GoFare'ing the city. GoFares are very well priced. Well, for the passenger, not US.

Why do you consider changing a 738 to an M80 a downgrade? There's not that much of a seating difference.  Confused



Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Again, if a US route has no competition (mainly from a LCC); GoFares will NOT apply.

There really isn't a tremendous difference in terms of seating, but DL has been using the ex-Shuttle 738s which have really nice interiors and extra legroom. The 738 just seems like a more comfortable plane than the MD88. However, the flight from TLH to ATL is so short that I guess it really doesn't matter too much.

Depending on how much DL raises fares and how much traffic declines, I imagine TLH will see a reduction in DL mainline service to TLH. Keep in mind that DL added mainline flights to compete with Airtran. With Airtran gone, I can see a few of those flights going elsewhere.
