    Thumbs up AirTran info

    Just got back from Aruba. First time flying AirTran.
    You have to pay extra if you want to book a reserved seat at the time of buying your ticket. Depending on location, it will cost from $6 to $12 (on my itinerary anyway) in coach. Business class is more. You can take pot luck at the time of check in & they will assign you a seat at no charge.

    If any part of your itinerary includes a segment on Southwest, no bag fees. Hurray!! That saved me around $70 right there.

    I don't know if this will still be accurate when Southwest completely takes over AirTran, but that's the way of it right now.
    I was pleased with my flights (MCI-ATL-AUA and AUA-BWI-MCI) and will fly AirTran again. I used Southwest points, and converted them to AirTran segments. Happy girl.

    Southwest has completely taken over AirTran. Eventually, the AirTran name will go away and you will not have the option to purchase specific seats on Southwest.
