Sorry Air Tran fans, that doesn't fit the SW business model. You don't like it fly someone else. Oh wait no ones else offers those seats for $59* each (*one way based on a round trip purchase)

AirTran fans should know that the AirTran biz class product only seemed more comfortable when compared to AirTran economy. This was essentially because all of the economy class seats had to sacrifice leg room to be able to accommodate the 3 rows of biz class up front. Southwest planes have the same number of seats (137) and no biz class. That means that all of Southwest's seats are more spacious. Southwest's econ class is much more tolerable than AirTran's was, so perhaps they should give it a chance.

When Southwest Airlines starts service, I will fly round-trip to Nashville to visit family, friends, and for work rather than driving the 520 miles. Business tycoons can pay the $500-$600 fares for business "classness" on another airline that caters to their special needs and sensitivity to sitting next to a commoner like a teacher or librarian for the less than two hour flight. Why would they even consider Southwest, unless...the cost appeals to them. Harrumph!
