Airtran Airways | A+ Rewards - what happened to fl1030?

I used to take 1030 on monday mornings from ATL @8:45am which was so convenient for me to reach work at SFO. From June 4th I don't see this anymore on Airtran schedule. Anyone know what was the reason? Will they put it back anytime soon?

Just a hunch: Nothing lost on FL will ever come back.
WN promotes SFO-ATL from September with first westbound non-stop at 11am. You need an early-morning run, you'll be devoting 7.5-8.5 hours with a stop.

I'm guessing that it just moved later to allow more possible connections. FL396 now departs ATL 10:20am arrives SFO 12:35am.
(They made similar moves on west coast flights out of MKE)
If that's too late flying the evening before is an option.

It appears come fall the departure time starts getting earlier... Oct back to the original times. Suggesting maybe summer loads need those extra connections to fill flights?
