So what happens to those poor 20 or so people at AirTran Holdings? I know AirTran Airways people will have work but do all the 20 executives at the "holdings" portion get to keep double dipping with a holdings job title, and their Airlines job title.

Sure seems like Southwest would be top heavy with these 20 or so executives?

Ah yes poor old Bob Fornaro of AirTran holdings is only set to get 5.7 million dollars while the other 20 or so poor executives are set to get only 10.2 million in retention bonuses.

AirTran airways employees get to continue working. Gosh it sure would be nice to be one of the 20 AirTran holdings employees!
