Does anyone know anything about Trans Caribbean?

Their website says that they fly, or will fly, from the Antilles (St. Maarten and Caracao) to London and some US cities. They'll use Airbus 340's for long haul, and 320's for the US routes. Other than that, I can't find much.

Can an American pilot gain employement in the Dutch Antilles?

What does it cost to live in the Dutch Antilles?

Is St. Maarten, or Caracao, family/kid friendly?

Will they require previous Airbus experience?

Thank you in advance,
:)

Yes they did. My Dad was AA Aircraft Mx supervisor back then. Said they we're some tired old airplanes they had. Stretch and standard body DC-8's and B727's.
They(AA) parked the DC-8's shortly after the merger but kept the 727's including a combi 727-100 that they operated in pax configuration only.

PHX--One of my TWA classmate's dads was a TWA navigator who was forced to retire at a young age when the navigators were no longer required. He got his ratings and ended up at Trans Carib. He retired as a 727 Capt. at AA.

Ironic, maybe.TC
