Looks like AirTran JetConnect will definitely take over most of AirTran's shorter routes. The only short route I don't see switching over to JetConnect service is GPT, perhaps maybe providing additional service on the route. Perhaps JetConnect will start some service out of BWI as well. I still think AirTran could use JetConnect to reopen some markets and explore new ones. Perhaps they can restart flights to BNA (closed 1999), TYS (closed 2000), BDL (closed 1999). I think they should really try to compete against ASA by adding service to AGS, AVL, MGM, and CHA.
