All AirTran 732's are out of revenue service and have been gone for quite some time. I am not certain of the exact time frame the type was retired, I believe it was ethier late 2000 or early 2001.
I joined the company in March of 2002 and was with them throught
April 2004, no 732's ever operated. Weather or not FL somehow is wetleasing the types, could be possible but I would say most unlikely.
But I am not totally certain, anything is possible I guess.

We kept the 737-200 on the books mainly for the operating certificate. It has been leased out for quite sometime now. When we ordered the 737NG it was an easy integration because we were already certified to fly it, and our ramp training manuals all had the 737 in it already so it was a pretty seamless integration. By the way that 737-200 is pretty sweet inside. It was in MKE a couple years ago with the San Antonio Spurs and we went it it. It has old DL first class seats, nice wood grain trim, and a ton of legroom.
Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever
