Do you guys get paid for that? If so, by whom? Just curious. :)
We do get paid. I'm not entirely sure where the money comes from, but the airport's publicity department does the hiring.
I consider this both funny and pretty darned cool. People go to the airport for one of two reasons: their plane is taking off from there, or their plane is landing there. They don't choose which one to patronize based on advertising or publicity. It's ... the airport. Nice to think that anyone involved with TIA/the city of Tucson cares about making the experience more pleasant.
