Which Airlines Used The Initials BAL?

Fri Nov 30, 2007 2:11 pm

HI,

I need to draw on the collective knowledge of all the folks out there. Which airlines have used the initials BAL? I have a knife with the letters BAL on them -- style of the lettering is similar to take used by other airlines such as East African Airways and others from the 1970s and it was in a bin of other old airline silverware. The only airline I can think of is Bonanza Air Lines but are there any others?

Thanks in Advance

Im sure it was Britannia Airlines though obviously now it is TOM due to that delightful remake they've done!

Unlikely, but perhaps Belize Airways Ltd?

That's a collector's item. Imagine an airline even placing a plastic butterknife in your meal kit today (if you can even find an airline that still serves a meal...)  eyebrow  . If they did, they'd probably incur the wrath of the TSA.
