Hello,
Does anybody have statistics on the top cities receiving votes?
Not looking to start an opinion war, just pure facts

TYS is surprising....considering they pulled out of there three years ago. But, that was before "AitTran Connect" and if they did the "AirTran Connect" concept, that might work. I could see SRQ mainline working for them as well as PHX or SAN.
Cheers !

I voted for Mason City, Iowa!

Northwest has held this city hostage with outragious airfares and a ludicrous amount of connecting possibilities through it's evil fortress at MSP for too long! Mason City needs a LCC to liberate it from the evil clutches of a major airline that is good for local business!


Isn't that right, DCA-ROCguy?

AirTran should do ATL-SAT, and DFW-SAT. I really think they should go to SAT. I also think they should paint one of the upcoming new delivery 717s in a Georgia State Flag Livery, and then paint one in Florida State flag livery.

OMG No! Another Georgia flag flap on top of the renaming the airport?  Nuts
I work for Southwest, but the views expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent those of Southwest.

Unless you have an ATlanta area zip code, your vote is not used in the determination of the city pairs they are interested in serving.
I know several people in the marketing dept at airtran, and this was set up for ATL based residents the press release is as follows:

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 3, 2003--AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AAI), today announced an opportunity for Atlanta-based travelers to voice their input on where they would like to see low fares next. Travelers interested in participating in this promotion should log onto http://www.airtran.com/atlanta for more information.
"Airfares drop significantly and passenger travel skyrockets when AirTran Airways enters a city. It's called the AirTran effect," said Kevin Healy, AirTran Airways' vice president of planning and sales. "We spend a lot of time researching and studying potential new markets. Now we're giving our customers the opportunity to tell us where they want to see low fares next. Who knows? The input we receive certainly will factor into decisions on where we add our unique brand of quality, low fare service in the future."
Beginning today, Atlanta-area residents can log onto http://www.airtran.com/atlanta and select their favorite destinations from the following list:



Albuquerque, NM Detroit, MI Oklahoma City, OK
Augusta, GA Grand Rapids, MI Omaha, NE
Austin, TX Harrisburg, PA Phoenix, AZ
Bangor, ME Hartford, CT Portland, OR
Burlington, VT Indianapolis, IN Providence, RI
Charleston, SC Knoxville, TN Salt Lake City, UT
Charlotte, NC Lansing, MI San Antonio, TX
Chattanooga, TN Lexington, KY San Diego, CA
Chicago (O'Hare), IL Little Rock, AK Sarasota, FL
Cincinnati, OH Louisville, KY Seattle, WA
Columbus, OH Manchester, NH Shreveport, LA
Des Moines, IA Nashville, TN St. Louis, MO

I know, I'm bad. I live in Atlanta and haven't even voted. If I took the time it would be SDF or LEX and maybe even BTV or YUL. I need to get off my ass and vote !

I voted for Norfolk, VA (KORF) even though it isn't on the list. FL serves Newport News, VA (KPHF), but Norfolk is more convinient for me.
Change is: one airline, six continents!

Ohhh hey uh huh NO WAY, sorry, its called the SOUTHWEST effect. No other Low-Cost carrier has the right to term that ONLY SOUTHWEST, as I can say it is THE low fare airline, the start of it all, man if it wasn't for Southwest....ATA, B6 and AirTran and all those may not be the airline they are today. So sorry, true if AirTRan enters a city NOT served by a Low Cost carrier then they can say they helped to drop the prices, but ONLY Southwest can use the term "(airline name)Effect" anyways......
Surpised STL is not up there as 1, 2 or 3rd place..lol
