AirTran to Charlotte

Good news for Charlotte-area flyers:  AirTran is reportedly coming to save you from US Airways.  The airline will begin flying to Baltimore and Atlanta in a few months.  This is good news as Charlotte has the 5th highest average airfares in the country, primarily because US Airways has something like 80% of the traffic in and out of the city.  No airline has made a major push for Charlotte because a large chunk of that traffic is connecting, so I expect lowfare carriers to come and cherry pick routes over the next year.
