My favorite items (in no particular order):
The commemorative glasses given to passengers on Pro Air's and Jet Blue's first revenue flights (I was on both airlines' first flights)
A 1/2 inch thick green glass paperweight, made by Boeing to comemmorate Pro Air's first 737-400 aircraft delivery - this was also given out on Pro Air's first flight
My boarding passes from Jet Blue's first flight, signed by David Neeleman, and B6
's 2nd flight, signed by Rudy Giulani and Charles Schumer (who were on B6
's 2nd flight).
My boarding pass from my one and only flight on Concorde - a subsonic AF
ferry flight JFK
A plastic "TAP Air Portugal" shopping bag. I saved the bag because of the story behind it. I was on a TAP A310 EWR
three years ago. I commented to the flight attendant how much I enjoyed the Portuguese red wine coach passengers were served with dinner. The next morning, as I was deplaning at LIS
, she discreetly gave me a bottle of the wine, inside the plastic bag. I had a glass of the wine every night I was in LIS
, and the shopping bag brings back memories of a caring flight attendant, and a wonderful vacation.
