This greedy CEO didn't do anything for this company and yet he is getting all the credit, it's on the backs of the people that work there while he makes all the money the people don't get nothing. They are working short with no help working like slaves no raises this is really sad.

I would have to agree, this is absurd! The employees at this airline are some of the hardest working in the industry and yet continue to starve financially while management enjoys unrealistic compensation increases, what gives? Do you really think you should be paid more than other airline CEO's? I guess management didn't get the memo that they actually worked for AirTran... Hey board members, did you know your employees are some of the lowest paid in the industry with disgruntled labor unions working well beyond the expiration of their contracts? The goodwill is fading fast and as a regular passenger, It's obvious! I would like to thank all the hardworking employees at AirTran for all that you do to ensure I arrive safely at my destination. One can only hope the employees who give there best and have allowed this company's success will someday equal their peers in pay, benefits and work rules as the CEO already exceeds.

I agree. I only hope workers react with a vote for a strike. This kind of scumbags have to be held responsible for the hurdles of thousands of families. They only think about them and their golden parachutes. This CEO compares to the misarable Baldanza of Spirit Air. They may even be half brothers. Will investigate.
