I flew ATA back in 1995, on a charter flt from DFW-MCI (Kansas City). We were on a B727-200 that was in the old color sceam, I think that was before they started repainting their planes. The flight crew was very nice, professional and the seats were pretty comfortable. There was no meal service, but after the beverage service the attendants walked through with a basked of mints and stuff. It was kind of a nice touch, something I had never seen on a flight, in coach anyway, before.
