Seems like easy extra revenue to keep

AA, DL, UA would like that

A F/C cabin at WN would give ULCCs an in

Could AirTran be rebranded, to do international, Hawaii, and long haul domestic routes to WN and keeping the First Class Cabin.

I think they WN still own TZ's brands. That would be a stretch, but would keep the rapidly dulling industry interesting!!!

Absolutely not!!! AirTran's "business class" cabin was let down by hard, uncomfortable seats, and the absence of meal/snack service. Southwest's cabin offers an abundance of legroom for all passengers, even on aircraft outfitted with the new higher capacity interior. Furthermore, the seat backs actually have some contour in the lower lumbar area! Why the f*** do other carriers wrap park benches in blue leather, install them in their planes, then brag about their fancy new interiors???!!! That one was for Delta, really.

Bottom line is that SW is LUVed by those who don't care for pretentious air travel. SW has excelled in it's service and customer satisfaction for more than 40 years; an honor that no other domestic carrier can claim.
