Recaro on a plane

AirTran is an airline that is totally new to me.

During our 2 years away from the USA, it appeared.

And it's pretty good. We flew their planes down to Orlando. They bill themselves as a budget airline. The only evidence of that we could see was the meal: pretzels and a Coke.

Yes, the seats were Recaro. (Car enthusiasts will recognize that name as a manufacturer of racing-class seats for cars.)

My only fault with the airline is their name: AirTran... it should be AirTrans.

So yes, I'd recommend AirTran. Remember that you must go through Atlanta, however, to go anywhere.

Believe it or not, AirTran has been around since 1997 and they've been flying in and out of DFW since at least 2000, I think! (I retrieved a guest from their gates in early 2001, which is the only reason I know this. Hehe.) And yes, my friend was flying in through Atlanta.

Pretzels and a Coke is pretty standard airplane fare these-a-days, for domestic flights, no matter how much you pay for your ticket!
