AirTran Airways Informative - Business class seats
LAGUARDIA AIRPORT, NEW YORK -- Well, I traveled to Denver in August and bought business class seats on AIR TRan. I purchased the tickets way ahead of time and bought them because they were the cheapest Business class seats.
Well, i have traveled business class in the past and have always been delighted with the seats and service. I was expecting business class like you would get on American Airlines. Well, my fault i guess. I thought the significantly cheap airfare was because i bought it on Priceline. I also haven't traveled in quite a while.
Well, the business class seats are miserable. I can imagine what the economy class seats are like. You are way in the front, of course, but people come back and forth to use the bathroom. Well it becomes like sitting in the back of the bus where you are too close to the bathroom. The problem with the business class option with Air tran is that they really don't have business class. THey should call it economy plus and it should be a lot cheaper.
If you buy business class because you need the size to be comfortable. You may want to try another airline. I fit in the seats, however, I was just disappointed because I expected luxury like you get on the other airlines. There was also no movie to watch, just xm radio.
Okay you say I should have known.
Customer service was actually very good. Everyone was polite and courteous. When I called to confirm my flight by phone it was suggested to me to board on line which made it easier to check in quickly. The flight attendants were courteous and helpful. My problem is with the plane ride itself, i felt like I was on the subway.
