or is this just a virtual airline gone bad?
I hate to say it, but I'm starting to think this as well:
I went to their "office" in Baton Rouge just a little white ago... and basically turned out to be nothing but a secretary in some travel office with a whole bunch of "Visit the Caribbean" brochures. The fact that they actually do have a tangible office is encouraging... though the fact that they have absolutely nothing airline-related in said office is rather suspicious.

I don't know, looks like another email is in order, as they've been pretty good in responding to me. My doubts are starting to grow as well, although I have a feeling that it's just delayed somehow...I'd expect a startup in June....if not by then, forget about it.
Fred, it might be time to pay that office another visit...maybe they have more stuff goin on in there.

A lot of the high-ups in MSY management are starting to wonder. Wouldn't be the first time we've strung along by a potential suitor: first it was Western Pacific, then Great Plains, now TCA.
I was thinking for a while they'd be wet-leasing off someone else's certificate (I guess that's legal), or possibly acting as a travel firm assisting in operating this spring/summer's Caribbean charters. I must admit it had me going for awhile.
I must also admit, I've been a little bit distracted this week. Every time I turn around now, there's another Delta Connection RJ at the terminal. And I see Comair is fixing to re-start MSY-MCO.
