AirTran Airways is trying to eat Midwest. This is bad, maybe worse than bad.
AirTran is such a crappy airline it does not even have luggage forwarding agreements with major airlines, so if you have to connect to an AirTran flight, you have to claim your baggage and then get it searched again when you check in to your AirTran Flight.
Midwest, on the other hand, is the last airline operating domestically that still feeds passengers real food with real forks and spoons (the knives went after 9/11, alas). Midwest is almost the best airline operating in the US, and AirTran is possibly the worst.
Why is it that the crapful airlines eat and deface the best?
