When my mother lived in SXM
in the late 70s, they frequently refered to ALM
as Always late Airlines, with the A for Antilles being Altijd. She also made some reference to KLM standing for Konstantly Late Airlines.
If anyone ever flew Sun Jet, a low fare airline that flew old DL
planes, I believe, you'll understand why I call them Suck Jet. There my poor mother was, with a 7 and a 5 year old stuck on the ramp in DFW
in the summer, on a jet that didn't run the APU, waiting for Sun Jet maintainence to fix a plugged lav that some stupid mother had flushed a diaper in. Then, on a 3 hour flight (and my mother didn't know this), all they served was one drink service and "fresh baked cookies", which they baked the entire flight and finally served like 5 minutes before touchdown. Miserable flight.
