Throwback Monday | 737-700

Welcome to Throwback Thurs- I mean, Monday! I decided to take the AirTran 737-700 for a spin. I never use it, due to the fact that this livery is no longer in the sky, thanks to Southwest. I wanted to do a realistic route from Indianapolis to Orlando, but accidentally set the flight plan to Atlanta and only realized when I was on final. The airline may have flown the route in real life too, but this flight wasn’t supposed to happen. Enjoy the pictures, and take in the wonders of the AirTran 737-700!

I believe it was a real route although it may have been done on the 717. AirTran had a hub in Atlanta and when they merged with Southwest the hub transferred to them. Southwest has lots of movement out of Atlanta now but there didn’t used to be a ton

Delta had nothing to do with Air Tran not being around anymore. They merged with Southwest Airlines.

when you accidentally fly to the wrong destination

Yeah, it was Southwest that caused the removals of that livery from the skies. Delta just got the 717’s

When you realize that you typed Delta instead of Southwest, as well as going to the wrong destination.

@DeltaCs100 @JacksonAviation @ClassicAirlinerLover Don’t worry, it was just a test to make sure you were paying attention. 😂

Thanks. I was just saying especially since my dad taught for Delta on the 717 before moving to the A220

But i must know, how did you only realise you were at the wrong airport on final? Do you not check your flight plan all the time?

So, recently I was doing a AirTran flight to Atlanta, and thought that I was going there instead. So I checked the flight plan and everything l, made sure I was going to Atlanta, then on final I realized I should have gone to MCO.

I’ve never heard of AirTran before, nice pictures!
