UCAP395 TTFNMF

Postby jarheadpilot82 » Wed Feb 17, 2016 11:31 am

I think Dave asked the question, "who bought Airtran's 717s from Southwest?" The answer is Delta Air Lines in a sweet, sweet deal.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/todayinth ... s/3189607/

In an insane deal, Southwest agreed to spend $100M (yes, Martha, that M stands for Million) to refurbish the airplanes to Delta standards. Delta got, relatively dealing, young airplanes with brand new interiors that they spent no money on.

Delta loves that airplane and, since that transaction, gone out and acquired several more 717s from overseas carriers.

Just fillin' in the gap...

Thanks for filling us in....flew many times on AirTran's '17s and loved the comfort...and interesting that the air line that got such a great deal from SWA is one that parts company from Airlines 4 America on the air-traffic-service separation debate....smart cookies down there in HotLanta... ;)

<Terry waves back!>

Let me know the next time you pass through Athens, Jeb (or any of you three for that matter), and lunch is on me.

And, Dave, let's hope they stay smart with the retirement of Richard Anderson.

Enough airline talk. As Jack says, "Let's go flyin'!"
