Tracking AirTran's Promises

I was working on this very sort of compilation, but Steve Jagler at the Small Business Times beat me to it with a better piece than I'd have done.

I still think that wiping out a solid brand name and genuinely special air service so shareholders can become instant investors in generic airline is a loss for Milwaukee.

And renaming the Midwest Convention Center the AirTran Center will demote our downtown's meeting and exhibition facility with the fake-named Petco Parks and Safeco Fields of the country.

Not everyone will know what an AirTran is, or why you'd go to a meeting there unless your air-conditioner went on the fritz.
