AirTran Takes Wing at Charlotte, N.C. Airport

AirTran, the nation's 11th-largest airline, will offer four daily flights from Charlotte to its major hub in Atlanta, and another two daily flights to a smaller hub in Baltimore.

He expects to log yet another 12-plus hours today. The celebration of the airline's debut will include Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory, AirTran executives, the media and even Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme, who is scheduled to complete a deep pass through a banner that signals an end to high fares in Charlotte, the airline says.

Asked for his prediction on how today will go, Lewis smiles broadly and chuckles.

"Smooth, I hope."
