When will they ever learn that contractors never work out as well as your own people? I know they cost less but I wonder what the cost is in bad publicity and lost goodwill. We had cargo contractors stealing from us, right and left when I worked there in cargo. Finally we convinced management that we could do the much better and with less people than they did.

It worked great for about 10 years but now it's contracted again.

TIA? Try the mouse-over on that. Damn, it's not in the database.

It's Tirana, Albania.

The know-it-alls of the media think that just because it's 'Tampa International Airport' the obvious abbreviation should be TIA and not the IATA form of TPA. I grew up there and always hated when they did that.

OP, please change the thread to reflect the correct form, regardless of what the media refers it to.
