AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc., announced that it will be adding daily nonstop service between Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, N.Y. and Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Fla., beginning November 7, 2007.

Management of AirTran Holdings Inc. is pushing to establish target dates for reaching a merger agreement with Midwest Air Group Inc. prior to Aug. 10, when AirTran's latest tender offer expires. AirTran made its initial offer of $290 million in October 2006. It has increased the offer twice and extended the bid several times. Its current offer is $15 per share, valued at $389 million.

AirTran Holdings management met with Midwest Air Group's board of directors July 16 in Milwaukee to present its case for a merger between the competing airline operators. All nine members of Midwest's board were present in person for the meeting, held in downtown Milwaukee. The board took no action following the presentation, Skornicka says.

Who hopes AirTran's price will take an up-tick upon realization of this odyssey...
