    But Asian Spirit changed the name and is called now ZEST Airways. Anybody has an idea for an acronym?

    Yes, but even with the name change, Zest managed to have an accident at Caticlan Airport in Boracay a year and some ago. So the only thing I can think of – it’s corny but here goes: Zeriously Endangered Safe Travel.
    Oh well, I tried…can you think of any?

    Hi all,

    It used to be said that Garuda stood for Good Airline Run Under Dutch Administration.

    How times have changed…….

    lol, yes, but Garuda has developed recently and their J cabin offer flat bed seats and AVOD in every seats.

    Also, I heard that they are introducing First class in their new Boeing 777-300ER next year. but, I don’t know if its correct or wrong.

    Two of my old favourites were ..

    BEA = Back Every Afternoon
    BOAC = Better On A Camel -or- with reference to the Profumo Affair Bend Over Again Christine!!

    One of my favourites was the old BAE146s. Because of the unreliability of the Honeywell engines, and the fact the plane had 4 of them, BEA was said to stand for ‘Bring Another Engine’.
