BIG LINE AT THE MAIN AIRTRAN COUNTER? Then head over its recently remodeled and expanded secondary counter on the near north side of the MARTA station. The airport moved the WWII artifacts and history exhibits so AirTran has more room to operate its expanded ticket counter and kiosk operation. And, celebrating its partnership with the Atlanta Falcons, the backwall is now a photo of its specially painted “Falcons 1” in air.
EARLIER IS BETTER. AirTran’s made it a lot easier for business travelers to make day trips—out early in the morning and home in time for supper. Okay…home in time for the 11 o’clock news.. Anyway, flights to the following cities now depart in the 7 am hour – Boston, New York-LGA, Baltimore/Washington, Washington National, Orlando, Tampa, Dallas, Chicago-Midway and Fort Lauderdale.
SAVE 5 PERCENT ON ALL AIRTRAN FLIGHTS. Did you know that AirTran is now the only airline partner in the American Express OPEN Savings program? This means you get an automatic 5 percent discount on all AirTran flights purchased with the card. 5 percent is not huge, but it adds up over time if you’re flying a lot.

AIRTRAN AND FRONTIER PART WAYS. On July 16, AirTran and Frontier will terminate their four-year old frequent flyer program partnership. That’s too bad for AirTran A+ members who redeem their miles for Frontier flights to western cities like Portland, OR where Frontier flies but AirTran does not. But AirTran officials tell The TICKET that this is a much bigger deal for Frontier’s EarlyReturns members because they were booking eight times as many AirTran flights as A+ members were booking on Frontier.
DRINK YOUR MILK. AirTran now serves milk – it offers NesQuik chocolate and regular milk for $2 onboard in coach (free in business class). AirTran tells The TICKET that good old milk’s been a much bigger hit than expected.
