I like the made up logos.

Er...none of these are anagrams.

Constructing an anagram involves taking the all the letters of a word/phrase and rearranging them to create a completely new word/phrase - ideally one which directly relates to the original.

"Schoolmaster" is an anagram of "the classroom"

It's a shame that this thread isn't about anagrams, because the usual unfunny re-inventions of acronyms like 'TWA' and 'DELTA' have been done to death on other threads.

http://www.wordsmith.org/anagram/

this link is to an anagram creating webpage. Some entries can give really funny results. I would like to see a few for airlines. Thus far I got:

Aeroflot = After Loo
Emirates = A Meister
Cathay = A Yacht
Gulf Air = Figural
Egyptair = Pay Tiger

Have fun!
