Is it really necessary that Airtran’s [TRS] flights carry “previously Valujet ‘Critter’” after their airline name? (See flightaware.com/live/fleet/TRS) I mean, the merger was almost 10 years ago, and as an employee, I can tell you there’s very little left of the original airline, physically or philosophically. Plus, it’s not really accurate… today’s Airtran Airways was created via a merger, not a simple name change. So not only is the VJ reference outdated, it’s not really accurate…we’ve got plenty of former “original Airtran” employees here, who were never associated with VJ.
So I’d petition the FA management to delete the ancient Valujet reference.
Note: I don’t speak for Airtran in any official capacity. Anything I post is solely a reflection of my own personal opinion. So please don’t fire me, Airtran.
