This was in today's Wichita Eagle:
Low-fare carrier AirTran Airways inaugurated daily nonstop service from Florida's Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport to Atlanta and Baltimore last week, and airline officials are already talking expansion.
Bookings by business travelers have been surprisingly high, Kevin Healy, AirTran's vice president for planning and sales, said.
Business travelers are a good indicator of the economic impact the carrier will have in the area, he said.
"The assumption that it was a leisure market was not necessarily accurate," Healy said. "We're off to a fantastic start."

why would SRQ service be in the Witchita Eagle???
I thought it was odd, but interesting none the less.
I still have my doubts that they will ax the MDW service, there is no official press report on it, and I read before the bid was made that they would operate the new MDW flights regardless of the outcome of the bid
