I was recently checking for flights from LGA to PNS, and was looking specifically at AirTran, mainly because I would be able to fly their new 717's on the ATL - PNS leg. But when I came accross their iteneraries (on OAG.com), I was stunned to find that now all four flights from ATL to PNS are operated by DC9's. To make sure, I double checked at yahoo.com travel section, and they too had DC9's. I don't mind flying the DC9's, but I was looking forward to flying the 717's. When they first started service to PNS from ATL, they mentioned that all flights would be on the 717 (http://www.businesswire.com/webbox/bw.110601/213100015.htm)
When exactly did Airtran pull the 717's off the ATL - PNS flights? and for what reason? When will they go back to all 717's on that route?
Also, does anyone know when LGA will start to see 717 service from ATL? We'll probably be the last ones
