Yes, my friends, today indeed is a sorry day. For today is that last time
that TWA will ever operate JFK-FCO What started in 1946 with little dc-3's then moved up to TWO 747-200 daily from jfk shortly shrunk into one 747 then to ONE 762 and now is nothing.
My Mom has the pleasure and the pain of going out on 840 tonight the airplane is a 767-200 and is fully loaded with PAYING PAX being left behind cause of how small the plane is The crew is supper senior the highest person on the list is #6 sheds the 6th oldest person with twa she is 65 years of age. (my Mom is the baby of the flight ranking in at #200)
The station at fco is beyond pathetic all the agents where crying (this is when i was there on the 6th) and the station manager was in tears (and he's a macho man too!) AND THE ITALIAN GOV'T SEIZED ALL OF TWA'S GROUND EQUIP DUE TO THE FACT TWA DIDN'T GIVE PROPER NOTIFICATION THAT THEY WHERE LEAVING ROME AND THE SH*T ON THE GROUND IS WORTH 2 MILLION DOLLARS +
Let us please pay our respects To twa as they lose there big money making route by posting under this subject the good times you've had with or one this airline and the good times we all look forward to haivin on TWA....TWA our airline!
God bless (And love your airline before it goes away)
