Does Anybody Miss Tower Air?

Fri Jul 11, 2014 5:38 pm

I miss Tower Air.    I like seeing those 747 classic coming into LAX around 10:00. FF was a 747 lovers dream, but in todays times, they could run their business the way they did, but I have to say, that I miss them

Well, before the haters get here...I miss all airlines. It sucks when an airline goes belly up, people losing their jobs. FF was a unique airline. I lived near JFK back in the early '90s, would see them quite often.

Of course, if you miss them because of their fleet, I can clearly understand that. I guess my livery choice would be the original one. Besides that, I don't know what else could we miss from FF.

Most of their fleet was scrapped years ago.

Does anyone know if N609FF is still at Marana, (last reported 2005).

Do Any Body Miss Tower Air

I miss the hilarious reports on the internet about how horrible their service was -- but I never had the misfortune of flying Tower...

Spirit is probably Tower's reincarnation with less attractive planes. The complaints people have about Spirit are about the same as they had about Tower. Still the price was unbeatable.
