AmTran Bus Company[edit]

What about the AmTran Bus Company? I searched for AmTran and got to the ATA page. I searched for AmTran Bus, but got no results. 76.251.80.56 (talk) 22:35, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I searched again and found IC Corporation. I think AmTran should redirect to the IC Corporation, as I live in Indiana, and have never heard ATA being called AmTran. 76.251.80.56 (talk) 22:38, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

AMTRAN is ATA's voice callsign. 75.18.184.241 (talk) 02:03, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

ATA PHL[edit]

ATA is planning to close its Philadelphia International Airport operations on January 10, 2005. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.167.44.93 (talkcontribs) 10:07, 30 December 2004 (UTC-7)

Southwest Codeshare[edit]

Please do not edit this page unless you use accurate information. I have updated with correct information and would appreciate if others do the same. ATA has *NOT* been bought out by Southwest and is *not* a subsidary of Southwest. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.58.28.177 (talkcontribs) 08:12, 8 January 2005 (UTC-7)

Southwest is using ATA Airlines as thier blue water carrier to enter markets for Southwest Airlines. By Using ATA Airlines to enter long haul markets Southwest will enhance thier route structure on longer stage lengths without adding a diffrent fleet type and offering markets such as Hawaii where as Jetblue and Airtran do not currently operate. This offers Southwest a competitve market advantage. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.192.73.249 (talkcontribs) 09:11, 4 November 2006 (UTC-7)

Chicago-Midway[edit]

Chicago Midway International Airport...Hub or Focus City? Sox23 03:06, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Unnecessary Info[edit]

Deleting info on the excuse of "unnecessary info" may not be in the best interest of the article. If one wants to be so choosy, then delete the entire ATA article as the airline is very small and unnecessary. TL500 18:07, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I don't mean it like that it's just that previous routes shouldn't be listed unless they are of significant importance...I don't even think any previous routes are important enouth to include Sox23 18:09, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
Where you've placed the info is fine by me...it goes with what is being talked about Sox23 18:11, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

ATA Travel Awards[edit]

Does anyone know if ATA Travel Awards was launched in 2003? Sox23 23:20, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Logo to use in infobox[edit]

Does anyone have any objection to my replacing the SVG logo used in the info box with Image:Amtran logo.gif? The SVG version lacks the color gradients seen in the GIF and on logo as used on aircraft and http://www.ata.com. -- Hawaiian717 03:59, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Agree with you 100% -- I'm making the change. Sox23 04:03, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

ATA destinations[edit]

Does anyone know if ATA serve any destinations in Europe? Someone keeps assuming the fact that ATA flies to Tirana, Albania from JFK. Bucs2004 00:26, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

The only time ATA will fly to Europe now is for a charter (presumably Military) Sox23 00:57, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

RIP ATA AIRLINES (1973-2008)[edit]

You will never be forgotten TZ. You have given me so many great memories and today is an extremely sad day for the aviation industry. It's a shame to see those awesome B737 and B757s go :( Sox23 03:03, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Agree - it was s little airline, but offered good service at a good price. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.51.66.32 (talk) 08:34, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Global Aero Logistics liability for ATA collapse?[edit]

Can someone add content and provide a citation that discusses a parent company's responsibility for its subsidiary? If I recall, a holding company is either directly or indirectly responsible and could be a guarantor for the losses of a subsidiary! Am I correct that a holding company can't just dump its children (subsidiaries) and walk away? Thanks!--Inetpup (talk) 08:17, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

FedEx was responsible also, as they dumped the contract a year before it expired. 75.18.184.241 (talk) 02:02, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Bell 206B Long Ranger WAS in the ATA fleet!!![edit]

I have added the Bell 206B Long Ranger to the fleet page I don't know HOW many times, but it keeps getting deleted! I can PROVE that it was in the fleet! Why do people delete it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.35.2.52 (talk) 01:18, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

When did TZ ever use a helicopter to transport people other than execs and mikelsons? Sox23 05:06, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

ATA rented the Bell to the highest bidders. It was once used as a tv station helicopter, but still under the ATA logo. 75.32.146.212 (talk) 19:34, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Okay, you got your stupid reference 75.18.184.241 (talk) 01:54, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

It probably was deleted because Wikipedia policy and guidelines require that content must be verifiable by citing reliable sources, especially for what appears to be a WP:REDFLAG such as this. JGHowes talk - 23:34, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Bell, Cessna, Lear[edit]

Shouldn't these be listed on a page called: "Execujet." ? Sox23 23:08, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Possibly, although I'm not certain that ATA Execujet has sufficient notability to warrant a separate article. According to the website, it's an ATA subsidiary and I've added a footnote accordingly. JGHowes talk - 23:38, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
I know that it probably isn't big enough, but they really weren't part of the ATA fleet...they were a part of a fleet of a company that also owned ATA, so technically its not part of the TZ fleet (kind of off-topic but the Saabs are only included because they were for ATA Connection). I really don't think they should be included in the chart...Sox23 00:29, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Agreed, the chart is specifically titled ATA fleet, not ExecuJet, so I've moved this information to a separate mention underneath the chart. JGHowes talk - 01:30, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Alright that's good. Thanks Sox23 21:45, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Unsourced material[edit]

The following is unsourced information:

  • ATA took delivery of the 1,500th Boeing 737 Next Generation produced, N333TZ, on May 14, 2004; the aircraft was returned on March 9, 2006 and is now active with Okay Airways.
  • An ATA L-1011 was the first aircraft to touch down on U.S. soil bringing troops home from the Gulf War.
  • Every ATA plane had words by the door saying, "The employees of ATA welcome you aboard."

While this is interesting, we can't use it unless you provide a source. Also, none of this is really trivia, as trivia by its definition is "unimportant information" - it therefore shouldn't be in a trivia section but instead the information should be incorporated into the main article. - Tbsdy lives (talk) 23:48, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

As I requested, please don't put the material back into a trivia section. Unless you actually agree that it's unimportant information - but in that case, you really shouldn't be putting it back! - Tbsdy lives (talk) 09:32, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Slots[edit]

Who got the landing slots after the bankruptcy? I guess Southwest? Mountolive le déluge 03:27, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

The only airport that ATA served that had slots was Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Southwest does not service that airport. The only new airline to DCA since ATA collaped is FedEx Express so they might have sold or been forced to give them to FedEx Express. Spikydan1 (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 14:59, 17 October 2008 (UTC).

I see...I guess they sold this one to FedEx as a part of the final deal.
I thought there would be more landing slots, and, if that was the case, I thought was worth adding to the main text, but I guess it doesnt pays for just one. Thanks for the info. Mountolive le déluge 16:15, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

" Red-eye flights in the air at the time of the announcement proceeded to their destinations. "[edit]

... Has this not been the case for other airline failures? Lambertman (talk) 18:45, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

... I've been stranded by ATA twice. I suspect that ATA had a policy of never telling the truth to a stranded passenger when a lie would have even minimum plausibility. Is there a way to investigate the number of complaints to the FAA, percentage of passengers who took return legs of round-trips on different airlines, frequency with which passengers were forced to contest credit card charges because teh airline would not issue credits after claiming to have done so? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tibbits (talkcontribs) 16:02, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Re-Assessed Start-class lacked proper referencing and structure contains Trivia section full of a bunch of nonsense and fails to properly organize the article. Marcusmax 22:21, 9 October 2007 (UTC) And again Article still has the same issues and needs these addressed before it can be considered B-class. Wexcan (talk) 14:48, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
