MANAGER Ken McKenna named himself in a seriously depleted squad but TNS were far too classy for the league's new boys.
The Planemakers were celebrating their first-ever Welsh Premier game at The Airfield, but any hopes of christening their debut with an unlikely win were soon quashed.
Marc Lloyd-Williams again led the way with his second hat-trick in successive league games and, once Saints found their rhythm after a slow start, the result was never in doubt and it was just a question of damage limitation for Rob Lythe's side.
Although Airbus skipper Paul Dodd was just inches away from getting on the end of an early free kick, Jimmy Aggrey sparked the first TNS goal on 15 minutes with a superb cross-field ball to John Lawless on the left.
His cross was met by Marc Lloyd-Williams' whose effort was turned against the post by Stuart McIntosh and into the net. Mike Wilde followed up to make sure, but the goal was credited to Jiws after the game.
The red-headed striker got on the score-sheet again minutes later with an instinctive striker's goal, his superb first-time chip looping over the keeper into the empty net.
On the half-hour, TNS put the game beyond reach when John Toner made a good run down the right and beat the Airbus defence with his pin-point cross for Lloyd-Williams to head past McIntosh from close range.
In first-half stoppage time John Lawless grabbed the first of a brace within 10 minutes, put in the clear by Nicky Ward's superb pass and beating McIntosh one-on-one.
His second came from a Steven Beck cross and Mike Wilde rounded off the scoring two minutes from time when he cut down the by-line from Ken McKenna's pass before beating a defender and firing a low shot across the Airbus keeper into the far corner.
TNS Scholarship youth Nathan Brown made his Welsh Premier debut as a second-half substitute.
