I was flying back to Dubai from the states when a colleague said something I found very amusing.
What does SABENA stand for:
Such A Bad Experience Never Again

I know there must be many.Let’s see who is really the wittiest of the website!7 Mar 2010
BA = Bloody Awful
ELAL = Every landing always late
TWA – Try walking across

however, have not heard many for the likes of Easy Jet and Ryan Air!
I am sure they will come soon.7 Mar 2010
Alitalia – Always Late in Take-off Always Late in Arrival
PIA – Please Inform Allah
Lufthansa – Let Us Fondle The Hostess And Not Say Anything
BOAC – Better On A Camel
BEA – Back Every Afternoon
SAS – Safe and Sexy
Iberia – I Bet Every Reject Is Aircrew
TWA – Try Walking Airlines
LAN – Leaves About Now
Qantas – Quite A Nice Type As Steward
TAROM – Try Another Route Or Method

Anyone got one for my “favourite” airline, THY?
I had to ‘sanitise’ the Lufthansa and Qantas ones for family reading….
A friend heard a brilliant cabin crew farewell announcement on SleazyJet the other week:

That Sky Team acronym is amazing.
I’m still stuck on THY…. Of course as an incredibly sophisticated international traveler all I can think of is the Turkish behind the initials.14 Mar 2010
This isn’t a really an airline acronym, but a funny tagline for one of the smaller Philippine carriers – Asian Spirit.
Due to its spotty safety record, people described it as: “Asian Spirit – only your spirit is sure to arrive”.14 Mar 2010
