Which is exactly why I included Ryan International in the airline name.

CBA,

exactly *what* planet have you been on? This has been covered by NOT only everyone here, but the US press, on air tran's website, etc since February....

I think the livery sucks on the A320. It looks much better on DC-9s and 717s.

Damn, I missed it on Friday! What time did it come in on Friday? I was in and out of the airport all day Friday, and knowing my luck I was either at the warehouse getting ready to come back, or was up on B working at one of my stores (Friday was hella crazy).

She arrived at 6:45pm and left around 9:30pm

It'll be back on Tuesday, and run Tuesday-Friday.

Been busy with school and such, so I've been out of it for a while. Is this a permanent thing? Is Air Tran switching to the A320 family?

It is not permanent, the Ryan contract is only until we decide on, order and get our new aircraft type.
We do not know if our own new type will be Airbus or Boeing, we should know this summer most likely.

I don't think the livery looks that bad on the A320 at all. But I do hope for some 737NG orders.
If there's any AirTran insiders out there, the caption on that photo says its in ICT for the weekend...what is it doing here?

Wichita is where Ryan is headquartered, and is where their mtx is based (along with the rest of their operation).

ICT is where Ryan International is based out of.
