Hi! I have a question concerning AirTran F/A's and commuting to their bases.
Does AirTran allow commuting for new F/A's? Whats the company like as far as morale goes and how does the company treat you. Would I be better off to stay with Southwest. I am currently a customer service agent but would like to transfer to inflight either for WN or possible AirTran or Comair.
Thanks a million!

AirTran is accepting people into its flight crew ranks. The question is: Where do you live? If you live in an FL city, you shouldn't have any problems getting to work. If nothing else, I imagine you can jumpseat to your base. Most FAs are based in ATL anyway, so getting there shouldn't be a problem for dead-headers.
And besides, it's difficult to move around in WN. You have to be in a certain position for a period of time before you can move to another, and with AirTran, you won't have people pulling 30 years of seniority on you. It's a young company, so there's room to grow and move around.
