You do realize this is an aviation forum, and this is, of course, the first 737 for AirTran.

Correction this is THE first "NEW" 737-700 for AirTran, they had the 737 model before.

Agreed, aviation is for people who love it.

You have to love it to go through all the crappy jobs and such that comes with working your way up to the front seat with an airline, ANY airline.

I'm working my way through flight school, gonna be burried in student loans when I grad, will be working a job flying checks, doing pipeline patrol, or God knows what. And you know what? Fine, I'm in it for the love of flying.

And I'd take a job with Citrus any day.

Go to hell. Both for you Valujet comment, and your sweat shop wage comment. I love working for AirTran, I'm 22 years old and a Supervisor, last year I pulled in almost $40,000, that doesn't sound like sweat shop wages to me. You can go back to being a perpetual college student, I'll continue to work for an airline that I love earning good money.

I love AirTran--it's been great experiences across the board. We're flying 3 students up to a camp next week because they don't get out of school in time to meet us and ride on the bus...guess who the first and only airline I checked fares on was...AirTran. Orlando to Atlanta...hands down it's AirTran every time.

Man I wish AirTran had some 757's though--I don't like 737's but I love the 717's

Id have to agree with Airtran737. I to work for airtran and Iam not making sweat shop wages. Ive been with airtran almost 4 years and I really dont think its a bad place to work at all. Reason being JOB SECURITY I say this because there are not a whole lot of airlines out there making a profit and still adding planes and new service to new markets. As for Jamake1 and Jaysit you will find that with making comments like you made early will get you no where with the many aviation enthusiasts and professionals that are on these boards.

Jamake1 and Jaysit

I believe that's called "Being a little harsh!!" Besides, I bet working for AirTran is great.

Actually, any aviation job is great in my opinion  Laugh out loud. Good to see airlines buying new aircrafts.

BR715MECH and AirTran737,

Good job standing up for us LLC employees. I have been with B6 a little over a year and will probably pull in 30K+ this year. In addition I use my flight benefits to max. If that would have been considered taxable income I would have earned over 50K last year. I would say that almost every airline employee could make more money working elsewhere but it is more than the just money. It is also the flight benefits and the passion for the industry we are in. If you could care less about that there is really no reason to work in this industry.

Okay everyone. I am here to offer my apologies. I got my hand slapped by the airliners.net moderator. I now see that my first jab was provocative. I apologize. I just find it more than a little disturbing to watch well paying jobs in the industry become eroded and diminished by the onslaught of LCC's, which I see as companies that do not pay a livable wage or sustained careers. It is sad for me to witness my former industry breathen having to concede hard-fought work rules and compensation standards in order to maintain their employment and careers. I humbly apologize for raining on your parade. Truce?

I think that AirTran is great. So are Southwest and JetBlue. We need more Greyhounds in the sky (although, arguably, JetBlue provide a QE2 experience at Carnival Cruise prices).

I doubt if anyone would get excited if Southwest acquired a new 737 type though.

I find it hard for anyone to have a good time working for Airtran, unless you have very low standards set for yourself. I worked for Airtran, right after the Airtran Airways merger. It was the biggest mistake of my life. The second biggest was staying with them for as long as I did, two years. I don't know how they are now, but it was really a second rate airline then, and I haven't seen it get much better lately. I busted my ass for $8.50hr. The reason they paid so well is because of the high turn over rate. At my station, after I was there 1 year, I was at the top of seniority. They were still using the pathetic rubber band bag tags, and they weren't even color-coded like WN, because FL was too cheap to buy color-coded ones. When I went through training, the trainers were promising ATB bag tags like the majors have by the end of the year. I have just recently starting seeing that come through, but Airtran's problem is that there are no bag tag numbers on them. Just flight numbers and the FL ticket number, which does you no good when someone is filing a lost bag report. They also had NO agreements with OAL's to reroute passengers, so if your flight was cancelled, you either paid another airline full fare or made the passenger wait for the next FL flight(which do you think happened more?). Because of the number of passengers that FL repeatedly sends to Delta in ATL, Delta has made them start paying full fare for reroutes again, because Delta is not going to be doing Airtran's job for pennies on the dollar. When I left FL at my station, I quit right after the Station Manager quit, because he said he could make more money selling insurance. And he is. The next station manager that they got had NO airline experience whatsoever, and was promoted to general office executive after being on the job for 3 months. Either that guy was good, or they had no one else to put in there.

Given that most of the executives are former Eastern people or fired from other airlines, like Joe Leonard(former Eastern and kicked out of Northwest), it did not leave me much faith in those at the top and still wouldn't.

So for anyone who says they love working for Airtran, I'm sorry...I mean, that's great, and I am glad you are having a good time. But believe me when I say that sometimes, the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. My benefits, pay, and abilities far exceed what Airtran tried to give me.

Well I can assure you that a lot has changed since you have left AirTran
We now have ticketing agreements with Midwest Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, America West, US Airways, ATA, British Airways, Iceland Air, and a few others. We don't use those crappy paper tags anymore, we have the automatic bag tags like all other airlines. Our wages are extremely competitive with other airlines, and our benefits are great 401k stock options, and insurance. Now the majority of our management is former NW management, the people that helped Northwest makes tons of money in the 1990's are applying a new business model for AirTran. I know what this company has been through. I remember when you wouldn't be caught dead in public in an AirTran shirt, or when you were asked what airline you worked for you said AirTran under your breath. I assure you that this company has changed. We've gone from the bastard child in Atlanta, to one of the fastest growing airlines in the country. I love my job and my company, and the flying public loves AirTran. We don't need a gimmick like jetBlue to fill our planes. We do it with friendly employees, new airplanes, a good route structure, and low fares. AirTran isn't the new kid on the block anymore, we're growing, and we're looking to take out the competition.

"And the flying public loves AirTran."

I'll remember that next time Airtran sends over 50 pissed people from a cancelled flight.


"We don't need a gimmick like Jetblue...AirTran isn't the new kid on the block anymore, we're growing, and we're looking to take out the competition."

So installing XM satellite radio was just for your passengers comfort, and not because there was someone else who could offer something you couldnt touch? So your gonna take out the competition, huh? So are you installing AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles on your planes? I guess I'll make sure to wear padded underwear to work tomorrow. Take care.

SWALUVFA,

Reviewing your profile, what happened over at World? They seem to have a good head on their shoulders, with Hollis at the helm.


You get plenty of pissed off people from other airlines? Good for you. Considering that Delta dwarfs you in comparison and boardings, and considering how long you did run the Nines(until lately), I think Delta receives much more of your passengers that you do of anyone else. But thats just me speculating. By the way, I never bashed anyone on this thread, I just stated why I was miserable working at Airtran and I have not seen change much in them. Like I always said, Airtran has the potential to be a great airline, they just dont know what that is or how to get there.

Ottopylit -

Although my workgroup currently has an "abrasive" relationship with management (see "AirTran F/As Begin Protests" post), I'll be the first to admit, the airline's operational performance has DRAMATICALLY improved over the last two years.

And you hit the nail right on the head earlier....it was pretty awful around here for a while - but I'll give it to senior management they've really turned it in the right direction finally. Two new VPs have concentrated on making the brand more desireable, and not based on simply cheap fares. Most importantly, we got rid of Tommy Kalil, and I'm sure you'll agree that was a VERY good thing.

We'll never be a jetBlue, or an American Airlines, but we are offering a decent, reliable, and most importantly consistent product. We're not the best, but we work towards it every day. Hell, in March, for the 12 largest US carriers, we were NUMBER ONE in on-time performance. I bet you never thought that would happen when you worked here....I didn't either for that matter.

I've been here for nine years, and have seen a LOT of ups and downs....I've seen it great, I've seen it dismal, I've seen it headed for extinction...all the while wondering if I should stick it out. I'm FINALLY glad I did....now if only we can sign a DAMN CONTRACT!

I dont know why people are having so many problems with the LLC's Ive flown the top 4 and have had a great trip on all. dont get me wrong i still love NWA but on the LLC's ive been on I have found the staff much more enjoyable then ANY major carrier in the US. If you think about it happy employees leed to great customer service! so they must be doing something right.

Didnt mean to offend anyone, just my thoughts based on my personal experinces.

anyways WTG Airtran hope to see the new bird in PIT sometime!

I know this is not the first but one has been born in this thread.

A disgruntle former employee that once worked for a airline that had trouble and know looks back and becomes mad at their self for leaving what is now a prospering airline. I'm sure they would hire you back and you could see the new Airtran and change your perspective of the airline. But I believe they only re-hire people that left on good terms and acted in a professional manner. Judging by your behavior in this forum you would not fit either of those categories for being re-instated. And how have you not seen change in airtran is this from hear say or have you flown us. I'm sure you have not flown us since you have a better paying job, Do you have your own Pvt. Jet.


By the way I make more at Airtran than I did at USairways and have better benefits!!!

So before you make a judgment based on 8 years ago do some research.

That is what happens when a AirTran 717 & A320 have sex. They give birth to a 737-700. Make sure to always leave the caps on the fuel tanks, or this could happen to your plane too! Congratulations to the new parents. LOL!

I am really glad to see AirTran expanding into the 737. I would gladly take a job on the ramp to have a 717 and/or 737 as a coworker. Besides, neither of my two current jobs pay an astronomical $8.50/hr wage. I would be very happy to get that much money every hour I worked. I play rent-a-cop (security guard) for about $6.00/hr and wash dishes and mop floors at a deli for minimum ($5.15).

HeavyMX1,

I make 1 1/2 times working for Delta than I made at Airtran. My minimum benefits are twice as good as the best Airtran even offered. My flight benefits blow Airtran's away, the atmosphere seems like a completely different world. Working for Airtran, with as much as I love aviation, I hated coming to work. With Delta, I look forward to it each and every day. So by thinking that I am looking back on a "growing company" and am mad at myself, you can go ahead and think that if it helps you sleep any better at night.


I think the motto for Airtran was pretty much summed up by CEO Priddy back in 1993, I believe it was:

"Every other startup wants to be another American, Delta, or United. We just want to get rich."


That one sentence glues together everything I have always seen of Airtran. Sorry, but it is.

For the people bashing AirTran: GO TO HELL.

For the workers and fans of AirTran: I salute you. I've never flown on AirTran, but it seems like its picking up some steam. I told myself at one time that I would never fly AirTran after the ValuJet disaster, but AirTran has done enough since then to change my opinion about them. They've definately distanced themselves from the ValuJet name and keep growing with a great line of planes, and what seems to me, great staff.

Keep up the good work AirTran!

This makes me want to become an A&P mechanic for FL. But I know thats a very slim chance of that ever happening.

Unfortunately FL's 737NG's will not have blended winglets. From what I
have heard blended winglets are only effective on long range routes.
The tight spacing of gates in ATL might also have been a factor in
FL not wanting winglets as well.
