TMA just did a mass FA
recruitment in Orlando, seemed to be a very sudden decision. Successful, as were most potential FA
candidates who attended, were offered a one week lead in to attend a three week training course in Toledo - starting this week. They were promised the local Orlando Sanford, FL
as a home base - 60 hour guarantee at $18.00 plus $1.50 per diem.
Is the slated Toledo hiring a second wave or could the company have changed their minds in less than a week? Based on the current schedule, it seems like SFB
is the more viable base for TMA.
Still, it's nice to see a new airline finding a niche, and their fares from the Orlando (area) to Las Vegas are almost too good to believe, and non-stop twice a week.
What shape are those B752's in? I believe at least one is ex National? I checked the outdated JetPhotos list and found a couple of ex Air Europe birds; I flew on G-BNSD brand new way back in 1989 - ancient history! We know the age of the 727s.
I wish TMA well, but SFB
still has the Orlando stigma - and not one to be shaken off easily. There are still many of folks that live in all areas of Orlando that could not place Sanford on a map, nor know how to get there!
