Two questions -
Alright, let's begin.
1) Do you sleep?
Yes, I do.
2) When did AirTran turn you down for a job?
They did not as I have never applied for any airline job.
You are so hostile toward the airline, and you are ALWAYS the first to respond to their posts.
Don't use an absolute like always unless you're sure in every single case.
What is it exactly that you have against AirTran? And please desist with the "I'm just sick of everyone placing AirTran in a 'God-like' position" excuse. There was one young kid who held a candle for AirTran (BR715), and you ran him out of town.
I have very little against AirTran specifically. Neither do many others. I don't agree with the statements made in relation to full-service carriers in discussions involving low-fare carriers. I love the double standard where it is acceptable to criticize majors like American, Delta, or United where any unfavorable discussion of AirTran, Frontier, Southwest, etc., is an abomination. Oh, and BR715.... I didn't run him out of town. He got banned for several violations of rules (including obscene statements about some airlines in his profile).
Most people could care less about AirTran specifically, but defend low-fare carriers and their economic impact vehemently. However, I see very little of you on other posts regarding the discounters, but you flock to AirTran posts (in a generalized hostile tone I may add) like a moth to flame.
There are very few posts started about discounters other than AirTran. This one was about Frontier, and if you read above (please, step away from your selective reading for a moment) you'll see that I did in fact discuss the issue at hand: Frontier. You'll see the first reference to AirTran (re: Toledo) was made by another user. You'll also see that I was specifically asked an AirTran-related question, to which I responded. The fact is that most discount-carrier discussion at present time that is worth responding to is centered around AirTran. There are a few National posts that usually say little other than "How much longer until they go out of business?" Same deal with Midway posts. I believe I posted on a Southwest post a few hours ago.
I honestly don't CARE, but your pattern intrigues me. Several psychologists may ponder your seemingly unnatural detest for an air carrier, that by your own admission, you've never flown.
If you didn't care you wouldn't have taken a few moments of your precious time to make this post. As stated before, I don't detest AirTran. I dislike the attitudes that seem to surround AirTran that are directed toward other carriers. Oh, I've tried to give AirTran a chance... twice. Once, Delta had the same price and seven more daily flights on the route than AirTran. I was able to find a time that worked better for me. I would have taken AirTran, and honestly wanted to try them out as I have no frequent flyer loyalty to SkyMiles, but I needed the extra hour that day and took the later Delta departure. Another time, I was also planning on going to Atlanta with a friend. He had to pay in cash, so we went to the Jacksonville airport. Another attempt to try AirTran.... Go the counter where there are three agents, only one occupied, nobody else in line. The agent told us brusquely to "come back when we're done checking people in." I didn't see them doing anything else, and no reason why we should come back 90 minutes later. We walked down to Delta and within ten minutes my friend had a ticket for fifty cents cheaper. Oh, and AirTran didn't have anybody in line when we left the airport. I don't hold the airline responsible for this, just one employee, nor is there any bad blood between me and AirTran over this. However, I do wish to try out AirTran but it just hasn't worked.
So tell us Jason...what did they do to you? Let it all out....it'll be Ok, we're here for you.
AirTran has done nothing to me. In fact, I am making another attempt to fly them in October when my travel times are more flexible. I have nothing against low-fare airlines except the hatred they seem to stir up against full-service carriers, and more specifically, the attitudes of many of the low-fare advocates on these forums.
