Wish Southwest would come, too. I fly often to Dallas and other points in Texas.

Airtran was stupid to ever pull out of Memphis. They could under cut almost any price Delta offered to ATL. It might be worth the hour drive each way to fly Airtran to ATL or anywhere else.

That's great for Tunica and surrounding counties, surely it will bring in more much needed jobs for area. I'm going to try and find out where I put in my resume. Any ideas?

And to think Memphis is missing out on this revenue. When are they going to wake up?

Let's see jobs , speed rail .. What in the heck are the leaders of Memphis, Shelby County, Desoto County and Tunica County waiting on ?

It's about time. I would like to see the schedule ad costs to the other places beside Atlanta. We are planning a international flight and are looking for economical connections. Flights from Memphis are very expensive and driving to Nashville or Little Rock does not help.

chances are Tunica gave a sweet deal to AirTran. Probably paid them to provide service or some kind of minimum revenue guarantee. Have the details been published in the local media?

How's the casino business doing there? I was there a few years ago and was dissapointed that they were all spread out. They should have been built in a cluster "Las Vegas" style. I prefer to do some walking but in Tunica that's not possible.

Yep, Tunica blew it when they didn't zone an area exclusively for casinos. A casino district would have created other businesses such as restaurants, gift shops, etc.
Very bad planning.
