I thought Atlanta was AirTran's Hub? That stinks because we love airtran and use it to go to West Palm Every Year!

That is very disappointing. I make ever effort to use Airtran when flying for work or personal reasons. The plane is nearly always full. Airtran is my favorite airline.

We fly Air Tran a lot and they're always full flights. We also have tickets purchased for October, now not sure it'll happen.

Why for heavens sake? I fly it all the time and it is always sold out. Cut you nose off to spite your face? I'll have to find another airline and I have been true blue to Airtan for over 14 yrs.

I am sorry to hear about maybe cancelling the nonstop service from Quad Cities International Airport to Atlanta. I have used this for over fives years now with my children in Port Charlotte Fl. and Mooresville Nc. I wish they would just go down to less flights or less days of flights. But I understand if it has to happen .Just sad and I have always been a loyal customer with good flights and pleasant attendants. I tell everyone to fly Airtran because I trust them and they are a great airlines.

Good Luck to you and to your decision of what is to happen.

It usually takes months for these decisions to take effect. You should be fine through September, but if you have questions regarding your flights, you can always contact AirTran's reservations.
