    yes
    since moving to FLA we have used them 2x for roundtrips orlando to aruba

    they have recently been purchased by Southwest Airlines and they will eventually switch to the SWA name

    Had some problems with Air-Tran we booked a flight out of Boston for a Sunday, long story short they decided not to fly out of Boston Sunday's any more so they wanted us to go toAtlanta on saturday morning and then fly out of Atlanta on Sunday. So i cancelled and went back to Jet Blue.
    Next Aruba trip in

    Airtran back up to normal on that website.

    Today US Airways has tickets for like 140 cheaper, each

    Any trend to this? Not sure when to buy for January, and by who.

    When you see a reasonable price, pop on it and don't look back.

    I got our airtran tickets back in February. Awesome price. Layovers I can deal with with the price.
    About two weeks ago Airtran cancelled my flights- put us on a later flight- arriving to aruba about 3 hours later.
    And coming home about 1am instead of 6:30pm.

    I cancelled- since USAir was selling for 22.00 total more then what I paid with USair and non stop flights.

    Next time I will wait til about 3 months before the trip to buy

    did you actually speak with a supervisor about in cabin pets on international flights?
    their website says YES
    i did speak with 2 people 2 weeks ago in their customer service dept and was told YES.
    one of our members was told YES, then NO, but last i heard YES.

    I did speak to someone...after I booked the flight about a month ago. After booking the flight, I called to schedule my dog. They told me no pets...so I cancelled the flight. The website says yes in one location and no in another. I am wondering if the policy changed after they were purchased by SW...?
