Anyone seen or been on the Airtran 717? Has it started scheduled service?

Thanks in advance.

I saw one of AirTran's 717s at the Boeing factory in Long Beach, they look quite nice. They are due to enter scheduled service this month, I don't know what date.

My October issue of SkyGuide shows that AirTran flight 280 from Atlanta to Boston using a DC9 is discontinued as of October 13, but effective October 14 the route is flown by a 717 as flight 346 leaving Atlanta at 10:25am and arriving in Boston at 12:57. There is no such notations on the returning Boston to Atlanta flight.
