TWA Memorabilia

Sat Jun 18, 2005 7:57 am

I started this post so that I could share some of the TWA stuff I still had sitting around here. The rarest thing I have has to be the TWA Getaway Credit Card (that was my dads). Share your stuff that you might have from TWA!

I am very impressive of your TWA memorabilia. I can not say anything more, period!

On other note, try not bend your boarding pass stub ...

I have a couple TWA Boarding Passes (I have every boarding pass I've ever had) for JFK-FRA in the early 1980s, and a few from their STL hub to various destinations in the 1990s.

A few months prior to their AA raping I flew STL-DCA in F, and asked for a set of their dinner service. I have a complete set. I think their coffee cups are too small . . . but needless to say, quite nice.

Nice collection. I have a timetable of TWA from the 1950's. Would that be worth anything? Contact me.

I have a TWA dining fork, but that's all I'm afraid! I used to have the knife to go with it as well, but that seems to have disappeared at some point over the years. I never actually flew TWA myself, but one of my uncles used to collect all kinds of airline stuff for me on his many business trips around the world, and brought the knife and fork back from a trip in around 1979/80.

Strangely enough, I used the fork just last night to eat a Chinese takeaway!  yummy

I flew MXP-JFK on TWA on the B767-200 and I went to the cockpit on that flight and the pilot gave me a map of the route, I am sure I still have it around some where.

When I flew MXP-JFK I purchased a aicraft set that they had on their duty free. The set is a 1:500 Herpa Wings B757-200 and a B767-300. Still have that set around.

I also have a few tickets laying around.

When it comes to TWA stuff, I've got a ticket jacket, a deck of Convair playing cards with the old globe on it, a couple of safety cards (MD80, 767), and a timetable or 2 from the '60s. Oh plus a few models.
