TransMeridien Airlines Shuts Down

Little known carrier TransMeridien Airlines shut down over the weekend, stranding a bunch of suckers who had booked on TransMeridien. Or found themselves booked on TransMeridien—the carrier generated most of its business by flying on behalf of vacation packagers. My only experience with them is having to pick up an ex-girlfriend in college at the airport at 5:15am after her TransMeridien flight from Jamaica was 8 hours late. Spring Break!

  1. You certainly proved the “little known” part. They called themselves TransMeridian, with an “a”!

    May they rest in peace.

  2. D’oh! At least I’ll never make that mistake again.
