In reality, the name of these airlines - really means...
THY (Turk Hava Yollari) - They Hate You
TAP (Air Portugal) - Take Another Plane
BOAC (former BA) - Better ON A Camel
SABENA - Such a bloody experience never again
Lufthansa - Let us f*** the hostesses and not say anything
Long time ago, charter "Cunard Eagle" (UK) wanted to merge with Aer Lingus -
Would have been known as Cunny-Lingus...
Would have loved to hear their flight number "six-nine" position reports...
