BECAUSE I REALLY MISS TWA AIRLINES!!!

Saturday, October 22, 2011

A (but very Important to me) Promise Kept........for Metin......................A short story of the relationship between TWA Airlines and Alitalia .... please take a few minutes to read....

A comment was left from a post of mine dated August 8, of this year....the comment from dear friend "Mr. Istanbul  Airside".....asking/wondering the relationship between the 2 airlines on the postcard.......
By shear luck, I was surfing away...and 'WALA'.....the explanation/answer to Mr. Istanbul's question....I guess I could ask.......what are the chances of that.......must be destiny.....even gives the Tail# of the Boeing 707   TWA's (N763TW)

Please click the web-site below(Vintage Postcard Gallery)   for the answer....

below I copied and pasted the comment he left back in August....Love it!!!

istanbul airside said...

Thank you Miss TWA,
I've already copied it (Sabena) to somewhere in my harddisk:)
and your latest SAS ad received and copied too:).

A few days ago, on a shopping site (Turkish E-Bay) i've seen some old TWA advertisements for sale. printed pages, from old aviation magazines. It's interesting to see there are TWA LOVERS even in Turkey:)

Have you ever heard the word Ephemera?

Dave W said...

Can you imagine an airline nowadays spending money on an advert to wish another airline good luck (and not in a jokey way!)

A lovely job GJ! I can see why ya love 'em!

Welcome to Metin, what a great blog you have! Fantastic set of pictures - keep it up!

Regards to all!

Dave (on his first glass and catching up with the blogosphere) from the UK

istanbul airside said...

Thank you Dave.Thank you for visiting my blog.
And yes, today, inspite of the big alliances between airlines (Skyteam, Star Alliance...), no one wishes good luck for the others:)

And Miss TWA.. Where are you??What is this silence?Are you O.K.?

getjets said...

Actually....I've been struck by a fever...103+...and I finally had to go to hospital...the fever of unkown origin been looming for a week or two...but would always come back down....thinking well that was rough...no more...NOT SO FAST..
Tuesday....103.5 can't take it...so on antibiotics of course...IV....KILLS ME...I AM AS HEALTHY AS A HORSE!!!!!!!!
THIS IS SO HARD....

SO PLEASE FORGIVE ME...AS SOON AS I CAN GET MY MOJO BACK....I THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONCERN....METIN.....Don't give up on me....Dave W....the same...

Love you all..
Jules

Dave W said...

Hey Julie,

I am just about to leave for work - a nice day driving along the south coast of the UK to a little town called Battle.

I couldn't leave without turning on my computer, having checked out your blog on my phone as I normally do whilst having my tea and toast and at first being excited to see extra comments I had to power up and pass on my best get well wishes to you from across the pond!

It's quite funny how used to having you around we are that we miss your absence after only a day or two!

Take your time and GET WELL, we don't want you having to do a Capt. D on us (best wishes to you Doug if you are reading by the way!)

I would send you warm wishes but given your temp (wow!) I'll send you cool wishes! :)

All the best to you and all the lucky readers who have discovered the mighty MissTWA!

Dave from the UK :)

Hey Dave from U.K:)
I've been to U.K in 2007, in Bournemouth(It's really hard to pronounce this name for me, i still can't!:) ) , for a Language course.
Really lovely county to live..
And i've also seen London, Bath and Poole.

And Miss TWA..How are you? Are you feeling better?
