AirTran: no free bags, but a great sense of humor

One of Southwest’s recent commercials has a bunch of their baggage handlers flashing their painted chests at an AirTran plane with the slogan “Bags Fly Free” spelled out. Cute, right? Well, the folks at AirTran have a bit of a sense of humor about the situation and they’ve responded online with this “ad” that they would run if they really cared. Or so they claim.

I love when the airlines have a sense of humor about themselves and their competitors. Behaving too seriously just isn’t believable.

  1. Fun! So how’s Airtran in the back of the bus? (never flown them, not much of a presence here on the west coast).
