Airtran Award Schedule?

Alright so this is a noob question but with the new airtran award card being released (and having so many RR points as it is) I want to know how i can looking airtran awards flights? I can't seem to do it on their site.

IE: everytime I look up FT Lauderdale to Aruba in September it shows no flights? Do I need an account? Can I get one without any Airtran points? Just want to get an idea of what there flights are like schedule wise / cost wise before I sign the fiancee and myself up

First of all, schedule has not yet been extended into September; it should be over the weekend.

Secondly, sign up for an A+Rewards account. Even without any credits in your account, you should be able to check award availability. At this point you are able to transfer RR points over to FL, if you want to book award travel on AirTran. There is no charge to transfer points/credits between the two accounts, as long as the names and addresses match on the account from which you are transferring and the account to which you are transferring.

Create an A+ account and then login with your new Member number.

Searching for availabilty appears in a calendar view. Coach is sometimes very limited Business Class at twice the credits in generally available. September is traditionally a low travel month... Unless reduced schedules reflect that you should be good.

Have you also considered MCO-AUA direct rather than flying through ATL? Depending on drive time from your location and any layovers it might prove worthwhile.
