Airlines' Names: Some Are Big Jokes!

Mon Oct 31, 2005 1:52 am

some names of airlines are a total joke! I think that one of the best examples is the French airline TWIN JET.......now why a joke ?

Well because the don't fly any Jets at all! That 's pretty much fake publicitiy .

Second of all, they don't fly twin jets properly speaking

The only aircraft they have in their fleet is a Beech 1900D!!!


Could you think of any other example where the irline's name may seem a total joke or pretty much inappropritate?

British Airways and British Midland (bmi).

"London Airways" would be a fine title for either.  Wink

The engines look like turbo prop jet engines to me.
