I am collecting these airline names twists, and I wondered if any of you A.Netters could help me expand my list.
What I have till now is
El-Al: Every landing always late
TWA: Try With Another
SAS: Sex After Supper
BOAC: Better On A Camel

Thanks

Many years ago, when British Airways used to be BOAC, they were invariable several hours late (on a daily basis) both arriving and departing from Bermuda. Thus they were given the fond nickname of "Be Over Around Christmas"!!!
