Ever since Airtran bought out VALUJET they have gone downhill. I mean I asked for Apple juice in a can & the flight attendant said in a snobby tone
IF THATS WHAT YOU WANT. THEN THATS WHAT YOU"LL GET. & they throw me a bag of Peanuts & a napkin that is all wrinkled up. I mean what is the problem here. I tried to lay back & the seat was broken. I reported it & he said he'll take care of it. I doubt it. also I went to the restroom & the lock was blank. This was a DC-9-30 & I was not real happy with the service. I had to be relocated to another seat because my seatbelt was broken. The Captain was real nice though he should get on to his boss

Let me just say that the flight you were on was an isolated incident. I have flown AirTran many times and not one time did I have a problem. I found the flight attendants much nicer on AirTran. The ones found over at Delta are rather rude ones, even though they are the highest paid FA's in the country. Just shows where airlines put their money.
Also, looks like you've got a problem w/ the food AirTran serves. Unfortunately, if peanuts isn't your desired menu at 30,000 feet, I suggest you take another carrier.
How about this: when the 717's come in for AirTran, fly them again

Well I thought AirTran bought Valujet too, but I just looked and I found out I was wrong. Read this:
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - ValuJet Airlines, a discount carrier that couldn't shake the stigma of a deadly crash in the Florida Everglades, is dumping its name and smiling-plane logo. The company announced a $66.3 million stock deal Thursday to buy the much-smaller AirTran Airways and adopt the AirTran name.
"We could pick one name or the other and we felt that the AirTran name better represented the interests of the company," said ValuJet president and chief executive D. Joseph Corr.
And I've never really had problems when I've flown AirTran. But those DC-9's are LOUD!
