Southwest Airlines inaugurated service from Atlanta on Sunday with 15 daily flights. Southwest, based in Dallas, purchased AirTran Airways last year. The flights that left Sunday were on Boeing 737-700s, and passengers received gift bags and prizes. Delta Air Lines, which is based in Atlanta, said it's "business as usual for us." No immediate changes are planned for AirTran, says General Manager Rick Pelc.
