I was originally TWAneedsHELP because when I first joined airliners.net - I loved TWA but was terribly concerned - even angered- with how it was being managed and run. However, as the years went by - most of my criticism either evaprorated or I just ignored it and in TW's dying days - I came to admire and respect the once great carrier even more - so I changed the name - ironically at a time when TWA needed the most help.
Well TWA got the "help" - through a Canadian named Carty and in a sign of my great appreciation I switched to a new name: TWAmerican, which after a run-in with ADG, was quickly banned. So, in a compromise deal - TWAmerican and TWAneedsHELP were deleted and I was supplied a mandatory "vacation" . Upon return, I agreed to use TNNH with a promise to be a good boy.
I'm user: "TNNH" on airwhiners - but rarely post there.

Few years ago I've read Lindbergh's biography written by Scott Berg.
I was so amazed with Charles Augustus Lindbergh that I decided to have his nickname as mine. It supposed to be Lucky Lindy but it was too long so I went just with Lindy.
When I joined Airliners.net (much earlier then what you can see in my profile, my nickname was LOT767-200ER,) - because my first transatlantic flight was on LOT 767-200ER SP-LOA "City of Gniezno" and I love that aircraft. And after some time I switched to Lindy.

Fritzi is a nickname that my friends gave me back in 7th grade. My real name is Fredrik but my friends thought that I had lived in Austria for such a long time then (for my age, 13 out of 18 years today), so they gave my name a little Austrian twist.
