yea, all the failures have to do with costs getting out of hand and selling tickets for nearly nothing. as posted above by someone their flight from rockford to vegas was almost full, but that means nothing when its almost full of 39-59 dollar fares. In TMA's case it doesn't help them that they are transitioning from 727's to MD-80's and 757's blowing a ton on training. hope those guys find a home somewhere. goodluck.

I wonder what's going to happen with TravelSpan's JFK and FLL to POS routes, which were operated by TMA. Perhaps Miami Air International, North American Airlines, or World Airways would get the contract (although a DC-10/MD-11 might just be too big), or TravelSpan would just cease altogether (which would be just fine for BWIA).

Wow this is really unfortunate. I flew TMA from Rockford to Las Vegas just one week before their demise last Friday. The service was actually pretty good. It was a little late, and the ground crews that they had outsourced to were not that great as far as customer service goes, but once on the plane, I received some great service. TMA will certainly be missed. They flew routes that were not well covered into smaller markets. Here is the last and only trip report for TMA in the database which I wrote just a week ago.
RFD-LAS-RFD On TransMeridian And HootersAir W/pics (by RoseFlyer Sep 26 2005 in Trip Reports)

I am extremely luck to have made it when I did. If they folded a week later, then my plans would have been destroyed since TMA makes up a good percentage of the flights to Rockford.

As for people getting their money back, there shouldn’t be too much problem. Charter airlines must put ticket revenue in a special account that cannot be accessed until the carrier actually transports the passengers. People with future bookings should have no problem getting their money back because the government has at least set up some preparation for charters going belly up unlike scheduled carriers. I feel sorry for the stranded people. I am sure that some of those people that I flew RFD-LAS with are probably stuck now, and as far as I know, scheduled carriers aren’t honoring TMA tickets.

Yes, it does suck.

I, too, had heard that TransMeridian was a good airline and that, despite the fact that some Missourians think BLV is too far away, their flights were doing well...without a lot of advertising, if any at all. Unlike USA3000, I never saw any billboards for TransMeridian!

Hopefully, someone like HootersAir will step in and fill the void. If they fly to MCO from BLV, then I might use them one day on a trip to Orlando and Tampa.

I remember their flight as always being full. Actually, hardly a flight where a passenger or two weren left behind due to lack of space. Interesting to see if TraveSpan will get another broker or maybe Bwee will cash in on the shortfall. Who knows?

Would assume most aircraft leased. They did have an operating certificate that had 320's on it which would be perfect for Sir Richard Branson to pickup on a chapt 7 sale but other than that not sure what else there was.  Wink

I think that North American Airlines might pick up some of the left-overs, especially those that can be profitably served from JFK with the 757. Interestingly, TMA's previous top management team is now at World Airways, the owners of NAA.

Precisely right- that may be part of their problem as well, because as they're certificated, they couldn't realize the revenue until services rendered. I would guess that put a dent into their liquidity which in turn, put more pressure on their finances in general to the point of being untenable.

As the previous posters mentioned, NAA is a good candidate to pick up that service, unless it feels that it can more profitably service the AMC with its 757s, as it did in September. More importantly, perhaps, the charters sponsored by travel agencies or travel companies (ad hoc and track) should continue seamlessly. Fact is, there is plenty of lift available from other charter providers to cover the demands of this slow season, and it should be no big deal for any of them to ramp up by an aircraft or two by the time the busier seasons come around. I'm sure that Ryan, Pace, Miami Air, North American, Allegiant, and Omni (or even perhaps Spirit, Airtran or some other LCCs during this slow season), would be delighted to work in the travel agency or inclusive tour business that was being handled by TMA. And maybe they will have some opportunities for some of the TMA crews.

Best,

Bill

That can be a big problem for them. Liquidity crises can happen to all sorts of companies and isn't necessarily dependant upon how profitable a company is. A number of fast growing tech companies folded in the 90s because they grew faster than their funds could manage, and they ran themselves out of cash. The problem here is that if TMA needed to generate more cash, they couldn't do it by having a fare sale or something like that because they would not actually see the money until too late. However I don't know the finances of the company, so I can only speculate. But it is unfortunate to see them go. The airline really seemed like a good little company and moral seemed high when I flew with them last friday.

Care to give us any hints on why you have that feeling? All of TMA's scheduled public charter routes can be filled by other carriers for the most part. Will they come back as a pure charter airline? TMA did have a loyal following in some parts of the country like Rockford Illinois.

Is this the same Trans Meridian that had 727s and A320s back in the 90s? It seems they had been a very small charter airline back then and now they were starting to finally break out. I'm very surprised by this.

Started off as the US branch of Transaer. After Transaer went belly up, they lost the A320s.

A bit ironic, since Vacation Express switched over to TMA from Pace. I wouldn't be surprised if Pace started flying for Vacation Express again. It wouldn't be a surprise if Allegiant started doing Vacation Express charters as well.

Thanks kid....and I will say kid because your profile says that you are 13 - 15 years old. You just helped to prove my point.

It is the preponderance of people demanding lower prices that is causing many industries to do drastic things to keep their costs low, like outsourcing jobs. In some cases businesses cannot get their costs low enough so they go out of business. In many cases, it is these same people that complain when their job is in turn outsourced, their salaries are cut, or their company goes out of business. And in many cases, it is these same people that complain when their seat pitch is too tight, they don't get pillow, or they don't get a meal on a flight. Until this line of thinking changes, that is people pay a reasonable price, then they have no right to complain about losing their jobs or the reduced service they get on flights. It is simple economics. So based on your statement...it is a matter of priorities....I submit that peoples priorities and expectations are out of wack! Unfortunately, it is the workers who suffer the consequences.

Yes, N958PG was John Kerry's plane and it's chained down to the ramp in SFB. It also has all the TMA logos and titles removed.

I wonder what is going to happen to the funjet vacations flight out of ORD. I wonder who will pick up the routes. I wouldn't mind seeing ATA do it again. Best wishes

Any word on developments over the weekend? Any other reports on who handled the "emergency" flying and who is bidding for the additional flying? I'd think that Ron Ryan would like to get back in the game, and that the other guys should be falling all over themselves trying to get their foot in the door at the various travel agencies.

Pan Am brought a 727 into Atlanta lastnight from SFB as FLT 148. Looks like a Vacation Express flight.
