This seems to be a sad year in aviation for enthusiasts and fellow workers, having to mourn over the retirement of old friends such as the L-1011, the DC-10, the 727,the 747-Classics, and also great airlines and names in history such as TWA. I would like to take this moment to mourn over the dissappearance of this great airline, whom once pioneered the skies of the world with its famous name, which was recognized all over. TWA was the first airline I had ever flown, eventhough I was a few months old, it is a part of me, just as aviation itself is, and now it is dying slowly, thanks to giant companies that amass great power and dominance, such as American Airlines. But I am not bashing these great companies for they have worked very hard and now, that hard work is being payed off, but I am here to pay my respects for TWA, may the name never be forgotten in your minds.

Although I am a great fan of United Airlines, I am glad that American bought TWA. Not because AA will gain so much, but because the awesome TWA employees will get to keep their jobs, and instead of dying out completely like PanAm and Eastern, the ghost of Trans World will live on in American Airlines.

The true heart & soul of TWA, it employees, will live on as an important part of AA. I know that for years to come, folks will talk about when AA was lucky enough to get TWA as a whole unit and look at all she added to another great airline.

TWAers , you will live on in our hearts!

Just think, if there was no Icahn, this would not be happening. But since it has happened, me being a huge AA fan am glad that AA is honoring TWA's orders for the 717 in a form of respect. And, also, AA is keeping the pride of TWA, it's employees. If it wasn't for TWA's employees, this airline would never have existed and AA is saving all of those employees and keeping them employed. The way I see it, is that if it wasn't for AA, those employees would not have a job but AA kept them and they can now expect a pay check. For the employees of TWA currently, I think on their name tag, there should be a little red "TWA" logo in a corner of it.

Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...
