Airtran only goes to these places because there is an incentive package involved. When the incentive goes away, they usually do too--- ala Myrtle Beach and Gulfport; or one city offers them more of an incentive ala Pensacola vs Valparaiso (Eglin AFB). Other cities are trapped by arrangements made by the city's chamber of commerce-- Wichita...

Or they can add 1 flight a day to jfk, never advertise and then complain about performance, cancel the flight every time it rains and oh wait thats our airline
