While browsing YT for videos I found this special one of a TWA employee who apparently filmed a typical turnaround for a TWA flight @ Vienna. It is from 1995 and also one of the last TWA flights to operate from Vienna. Sad to watch, but great shots of the cabin, and check-in as well!

you cannot hide anything on internet
I did this film and uploaded it on youtube. There is a second one in the pipeline of the last TW flight operating - a little more employees/colleagues and the sadness with all of us on that day .... will take some time to work on, it is all VHSmaterial (which I recently found again) I have to work on.

Quoting UN_B732 (Reply 3): The English in the video sounds like there's no accent at all. Did TW have American employees abroad?
the girl at check-in was "American born and raised" (what I remember she was from Ohio) but was married with an Austrian. The ground staff of TW VIE was the usual "TWA mix" of people from all kind of nations - it was the same with most of the TW stations all over Europe.

This just made me think of something:
Look at the vertical stablizer on the airplane. At the top is the American flag. I remember hearing somewhere at that time that, if the airplane was flying internationally, the flag had to be at the top of the tail. If it was a domestic airplane, the flag was by the N registration.
A quick search of the database seems to back that up. For example, DL's L15's and int'l L10's from that time have their flags at the tail, as do the 7ER's, but the L10's and the 763's do not. The flags were only present by the N registration in the 1997 change. TWA's 767's and 747's seem to only have the flag atop the tail, but then again myunderstanding was that they didn;t have a sgregated domestic/int'l fleet the way DL did.
Was having the flag atop the tail for int'l aircraft in fact a rule and if so when did it change?
