They were ATL based. The MCO based flight attendants are always awesome in my experience. I've never missed a PDB with them and they are quick to serve after takeoff.
I just flew DAB-ATL a couple of weeks ago with a SEA based crew oddly enough and they were very energetic and made multiple runs. Guess it depends on where they are based from because I agree with ATL based crews on this route are usually lazier.

FYI: the CS100 A220 is not a regional jet and will have mainline DL crews.
