I think this is in response to Air Trans recent announcement, Norhtwest Airlines wil be starting FNT-FLL Oct 30th.
Not only will airtran be starting DTW-MCO, I belive I read Airtran will be starting FNT-RSW as well. . .
The new service will be operated with the 100-seat DC-9-30, featuring
16 seats in first class and 84 seats in coach class.
Currently, Northwest offers more daily departures (up to 11) and carries
more passengers from Flint than any other airline. The new service to Ft.
Myers will complement the seven daily flights Northwest currently offers
between Flint and its WorldGateway at Detroit hub, and the two daily flights
between Flint and the carrier's Minneapolis/St. Paul hub. Northwest also
provides seasonal daily service from Flint to both Orlando, Fla., and Tampa,
Fla., from Dec. 15 to April 30, and weekly Saturday service to those cities
the rest of the year.
