AirTran Airways Complaint - Extreme jet exhaust smell
I just got home from a trip to NYC. I flew AirTran from Memphis to New York City and back via Atlanta. My impression of AirTran is not so good. First, when on the ground waiting to takeoff, the jet exhaust smell in the passenger cabin is terrible. I have never experienced this with any other airline. But with AirTran the smell was awful prior to every takeoff. This is not healthy.
Second, they do not have enough overhead storage room for the amount of carry-on luggage they allow. Some passengers had to check their carry-on items. I carry a necessary and expensive medical appliance and would not want to be forced to check it.
The free in-flight XM Radio is nice. Except announcements by crew come through the headphones very loud compared to the music.
