NWA's Pilot Wings

Thu Jul 15, 2004 10:12 am

Why do Northwest's pilots wear wings that say 'US Air Mail?'

Thanks for all the help  Big grin

Jeremy, I think it dates back to when they were a U.S. Air Mail service, and they just like to display their heritage. That is my guess. Other than that maybe they are FedEx wannabes? LOL. I personally think their wings should be updated with the new logo motif. Just my $.02!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Good point, I am sure new wings, uniforms, interiors, and other amenities will be in the works when we return to profitability.

being the 1st carrier to carry both Passengers and mail, it is a reminder to where the airline came from.

I doubt if they will ever go away.

I don't know if he does, but I Would.. no doubt on that..

It is just a way for them to "honor" their roots.
