I hope they get their website and bookling system up and running. Just over a year ago I tried to book Edelweiss's new YVR-ZRH service for a trip to Switzerland. Website was useless, and the only phone number was in Zurich. I ended up booking AC through Toronto. It worked, but I really wanted the non-stop and would have paid a little more for it.
Good luck to them anyway. I'll try again if another opportunity comes up -- but I wasn't impressed.
Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Flights are codeshared with LX. You can easily book on the LX website.

I am really happy to see new international service out of Tampa. To my mind, there still isn't enough "heavy" traffic out of TPA. Understandable though, since most of the business traffic in Florida seems to come into and out of Orlando and Miami.

Nice pics guys and glad to see new International service at my home airport of TPA. I am almost positive this is the first A-330 scheduled service to TPA, perhaps first Airbus widebody for that matter, though would not be surprised if a few have visited before on Charters or for MTC at Pemco.
Congrats Tampa International
