You poor sould, well we are one of those major markets that seems to be in it teen years. The Tampa Metro is growing quickly and doesn't have to rely on the mouse for support. Along with our lower operating costs and lovely beaches I might add, we are the city that is growing up to be big. BA
has served TPA
for almost 8 years (I think, didn't they start service in 1997?), we must have never lost money on the route as they continue to upgrade and serve it. More recently our international traffic has fallen off, with the withdrawl of Thomas Cook/Condor. The authority is trying to bring back international travel to a market that is not yet proven, which creates a few problems. Let alone the stupid MCO
down the 4, as you can tell I am not a proMCOer on this board. Any how the HCAA can get pretty much any domestic service it thinks we would need and so international is the weak spot they are trying to focus on more, but also retaining domestic service at the same time.
