    I was flying back to Dubai from the states when a colleague said something I found very amusing.

    BA = Bloody Awful
    ELAL = Every landing always late
    TWA – Try walking across

    we were all kids once!

    however, have not heard many for the likes of Easy Jet and Ryan Air!

    I am sure they will come soon.

    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

    LOT – Left On Tarmac

    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:

    “We hope you’ve enjoyed the flight, we hope you’ve enjoyed the Easy Kiosk, as we have have certainly enjoyed taking you for a ride.”

    All I can think of for EZY is Sleazy Jet, but then again never having tried low cost (and dont intend to) perhaps this is too nice

    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.

    Thx!

    THY, lets see.. Turkey is a muslim country…

    The Haraam, You. 😀

    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”.
