Business travelers who frequently fly with AirTran Airways have formed an informal organization called AirTranSOS (for Save Our Seats), urging Southwest Airlines to preserve assigned business-class seating once it completes its takeover of AirTran. "This is simply a campaign begging Southwest Airlines to keep the best of AirTran Airways alive," says Joe Leader, an SOS spokesman. Southwest says it is focused "on leveraging the best of both airlines."
