AirTran First B717 Flight

Thu Jun 03, 1999 6:05 am

Ok, I know some of you long time forum members are getting sick with me asking this... but please bear with me. When will the first passenger flight for the AirTran B717 be scheduled? And when will information (such as flight number, departing and arriving time and airports, etc) be available? If is already is, where can I get it?? Thanks!

btw, emailing AirTran doesnt work...

*Takes big breath for the umpteenth time* AirTran will more than likely use it on the Gulfport runs to promote the Mirage Resorts Vacations.

BTW, please be patient. I have connections to AirTran and I will post on this message board exactly what route it will first appear.

Thanks FirstClass!(!) Yea that'd be great if you could post it or email it to me (chrisbarrow@geocities.com) when the info is available. Its just that I have seen the pics and heard about how that it has been spotted at ATL and other places and I thought it was either time or I was already to late.
