I've heard America Worst a time or two. I'm sure any airline with west in the name could become a worst after a string of bad news or reviews.

Off the top of my head:

TWA - Try Walking Airlines
DELTA - Don't Expect Luggage To Arrive
EL AL - Every Landing Always Late
Sabena - Such A Bad Event Never Again
Qantas - Queer and nice types of Australian Stewards
BWIA - Britain's Worst Investment Abroad or But Will It Arrive?

I never heard a good fake name for BA - Aussies called it Bloody Awful and some Bugger All.

OK....some military additions to this:

From the US Air Force:

AMC (Air Mobility Command) = "Another Missed Christmas"

AETC (Air Education and Training Command) = "Air Et Cetera"

Offutt AFB (Omaha Nebraska) = "Awful Offutt in Oh-my-god Nebraska"

Minot AFB (North Dakota) = "Why not Minot? Freezin's the reason"

Mildenhall AB, UK = "Moldy-hole"

Al Kharj AB, Saudi Arabia = "Al's Garage"

From the Joint military commands:

JFCOM (Joint Forces Command) = referred to as "Jiffy-com"

I'm stunned. No one mentioned US Scareways, formerly known as US Scare or Agony Airlines. How about the Poor Sailor's Airline?
