    AirTran sucks. I fly out of Newark (EWR) to Atlanta several times a year. I don’t believe it has ever left on time. Now the airline has managed to strand me in the airport. No hotel voucher, of course.

    I have two free round trip tickets (from an earlier AirTran escapade). They’re for sale. Cheap!

    Atlanta is extra special right now as they have one runway out for repaving so traffic at the world’s busiest airport gets compressed and stacked up quite a bit. I just flew Air Tran from Detroit to Atlanta. My outbound flight Tuesday was about two hours late. My return flight yesterday pulled away from the gate more or less on time, but it took us about 40 minutes to taxi through all of the traffic to get to the head of the line to take off.

    Free tickets aren’t usually transferable, but we could use them if they were… we don’t usually plan travel on a tight schedule. My guy is graduating next week with his full animation degree (he already got an AA degree and some years of experience) and will be out looking for serious work. Too bad financial aid doesn’t cover the expenses of the job search.

    My sister-in-law flew with them last time, and not only did they leave late, they lost her luggage and then jacked around with getting it back to her. She could have driven back to Atlanta and then back to Illinois and gotten it quicker.

    Yeah, I bought a WiFi card for my laptop years ago. One of my best purchases ever. ATL has cheap wireless access– only $6 for 24 hours.
