no personal tvs, are you kidding? they are little short haul 737s and 717s, they don't even have overhead monitor!
Flight is fine, will be packed because they are cheap. If you are among the last to board, expect to have your roll-aboard taken away 'cos the bins will be full
They do have XM radio
You are allowed to take one carry-on bag with you on board the plane for free. Its overall dimensions (add up the length + width + depth) cannot be more than 55 inches. No weight limit is specified, but if it's heavier than 20 lbs you may be required to check it. You can also take a "personal item" - like a laptop, camera, purse or briefcase. Basically, this a smaller, handheld item or bag.
As I read Air Tran's checked luggage policy (and assuming that you flying coach and are NOT active military personnel) you will pay:
$15 for your 1st checked bag;
+ $25 for a 2nd checked bag;
+ $50 for each additional checked bag.
These prices are for bags that weigh less than 50lbs. A bag's overall dimensions must not be more than 61 inches.
Bags that are heavier than 50lbs or that exceed the dimension limits will cost extra, depending on their weight and size.
Active military personnel (you must have your ID and official orders) can check up to three bags for free, as long each bag is less than 80 inches, and the total weight of all of them is not more than 100 lbs.
I've posted the link to Air Tran's baggage information page. It's worth double checking this information before you fly in case I've missed something or they change the rules.
air tran cancelled flight due to weather, so i changed intinerary to wed. can i still stand by before that day?
If Airtran says that stand by is only possible on the same day as the ticket, then that is probably the rule.
Can you go to the airport and try to convince them to let you take a flight the day before?
Of course you can.
Whether the Airtran ticket agents allow themselves to be convinced that you deserve to go a day early is an entirely different question that no one can answer.
You have nothing to lose except spending an extremely boring day at the airport when you did not need to.
Can i take an acoustic guitar onto an air tran airplane?
yes but you have to put it in a case or something and they'll charge you for it too, my cousin went to AZ but he couldnt take his acoustic because he only had enough for his ticket, it would be cheaper if you had a friend or someone ship it to you like ups or something
My wife and I always use them when possible and we have been very happy with them. Their service is great, the planes are nice and clean, and they are usually on time. Longer flights sometimes have a movie on them.
Can you bring a cat with you in the cabin on Air Tran?
Traveling with a pet
We accept small, domesticated pets (cats, dogs and birds) that will fit comfortably in an approved carrier under the seat. This would mean no larger than 8.5" high X 17" long X 12" wide. The weight of the pet plus carrier cannot exceed 40 pounds or roughly 18 kilos.
Airfare for a pet is $65 one-way.
**Be advised there is only a maximum of 2 cabin pets allowed in coach cabin on each flight and 1 allowed in first/business class. It is a first come first serve basis**
is air tran comparable to the other major airlines?
Whether or not the salary of the pilots are comparable to the other airlines doesn't matter. The airline is still safe and was rated as one of the highest according to today's Wall Street Journal. AirTran was rated as either #1 or #2 in terms of highest passenger satisfaction. Alaska, Southwest and JetBlue were the others with higher ratings.
You can always go to http://wwwseatguru.com to find out the seat width and pitch. AirTran uses Boeing 737 and 717 aircraft. Even though AirTran is a discount airline, most discount airlines are rated better than the legacy airlines of Delta, United, American and Continental.
