Pricewin,I bought AirTran at 8 1/2 about 2 years ago and it is finally up to the level I purchased it at. Barring more violent hail storms and stray oxygen canisters, they are poised to make money - me too! The advantage Greyhound has over AirTran is they never leave the ground. I usually get on board too early like you did with this one. I was pinching pennies with Chrysler last week, tried to buy it at 38 3/8, it dropped to 38 1/2 because of the "loyal customer discount" war they were embarking on with f and gm and now it's what, 52? The thought of being left at the loading platform if BUS pulls out without me was just too much to bear. I bought doggie stock at 6 1/16 yesterday. If AirTran doesn't fly there , I'm taking the bus.
