need help immediately with a school question - asap please!

hi - i am begging here - i just did my school presentation on airtran vs delta and a question was asked -- i have 15 mins to research an answer

when airtran and delta are on the same route - why would someone pick airtran over delta?

any help in the next 10 mins is greatly appreciated!!!

Better reward on AirTran if you use an American Express Card.

... Also, did you miss out on the whole 'AirTran is installing XM on all of their jets'?

Not to mention cheaper

Did you not include in your report that AirTran is consistently cheaper on air fares than Delta?

AirTran likes to pre sell a lot of their seata at low prices, it has been my experience that Delta likes to charge through the nose for flights and then at the last minute if the flight is going to go empty they might put it on sale.

The F/As are cuter. Seriously, I've had people tell me this.

AirTran also has a newer jet fleet than Delta.
