For thirty years I flew strictly TWA to Egypt. It was the best flight, the
cream of the crop crew, we were one big happy family. The stewardess
always recognized me because I went there at least once a year, but most
times two to three trips a year. I miss those good old days. As far as I'm
concerned, Carl Icahn will get his when the time is right. I can't believe he helped put all those wonderful people out of a job. I won't go to his
hotel in Vegas and I steer everyone I know or meet away from it. TWA is
and was truly the best. Their employees did it. If there was a miracle to be had, I'd wish for TWA to be back and flying again.
