Vick Loses AirTran Airways Endorsement Deal

AirTran Airways has not renewed their endorsement deal with Michael Vick. He has been a spokesperson for AirTran since 2004. Not only is Vick being investigated for dogfighting, but he also had other publicity problems like when he was stopped at Miami Airport security for having a water bottle with a secret compartment in it. His publicist also blamed AirTran when Vick missed a flight to Washington to speak in front of Congress even though the airline said that Vick had many opportunities to take a flight but chose not to.
