I loved Braniff......best job and company (even better than mine!) I worked for. Now I'm old and grey and out of 'da biz',I'd give a years pay(and thats alot,folks) to go back and do it all over again at MKC.

Keep trying on the 80 anniversary info.

Braniff was a great marketing machine, with the "Flying Colors" and Big Orange 747. Harding Laurence had very Pacific ambitions with 747SP that eventually doomed the airline before flying to Asia become in vogue, as it is today. Braniff never was able to fly to Tokyo which it always believed was the center of profitablility to Braniff's Asian startegy. Sadly flying to Seoul, Hong Kong and Singapore proved to be a huge waste of money. Flying from Boston to Europe with 747 also proved to be a waste, the only European route Braniff made money on was DFW to LGW, ironically picked up by AA just days after BN closed its doors. Sadly much of AA's international system today started with Braniff, DFW to LGW and Latin America( Eastern flew it before AA).

And Eastern purchased their Latin America division from Braniff as they were sinking.
