AirTran Airways will defer the delivery of 18 737-700s from 2009-11 to 2013-14, it announced Friday. President and CEO Bob Farnaro said the deferment will "accomplish a substantial portion" of the carrier's previously announced plan to reduce 2008-09 growth from 10% to "no more than flat" (ATWOnline, April 23). It currently operates 54 -700s and 87 717-200s.
