It’s REALLY interesting how some people, particularly aviation enthusiasts, of all people, simply cannot let go of Allegheny.
Remember Don’t Expect Luggage To Arrive? How about “Untied?” Truth is, people have had it in for US for 50+ years. Most of you folks blasting them weren’t even alive back then, lol.
Oh, I was.
Living in Columbus, I remember the bad, old days of the late 70s - 80s when Allegheny/USAir had a virtual lock on service to the east coast, and they acted like it. Decrepit, dirty planes, staff that gave new meaning to the words "surly" and "uncaring"... I know plenty of people (myself included) who would work their schedules around so they could catch one of the few TW flights to DCA/LGA/JFK and avoid Allegheny's/US' "service."
An,d one of the reasons why they renamed repeatedly is because their service had become so lousy that they thought renaming it might dupe customers. But, whatever they called themselves, I, and monay others will always remember them as Agony Airlines.
