    I thought it might be fun to start a thread where one member posts an airline slogan, past or present (ala "The Friendly Skies" for UA or "The World's Favourite Airline" for BA), another one posts the response and then his or her next entry, etc. Let's see if there is any interest.

    Who remembers this one - which airline? "Top Banana In The West."

    Bonus question: Since this carrier has long since departed, if one follows the lineage of mergers and acquisitions, which airline is it a part of now?

    Hughes Airwest! Merged into Republic. Merged into Northwest Orient. Became Northwest Airlines. Merged into Delta Air Lines.

    Good one! I flew Hughes Airwest about 1978 from MAF to DAL to HOU, IIRC.

    Hughes Airwest?

    Which should be a part of Delta now?

    We Love to Fly and it Shows

    Yes to both of you, Hughes Airwest.

    Now as for "We Love To Fly. . . Again, Delta.

    While that slogan was running, DL made a service commitment involving helping out another carrier, then arguably backtracked. Causing detractors to change the slogan to "We Love To Lie, And It Shows."

    Try this one, and again, if it had survived, what carrier would it be part of now?:

    "Up, Up and Away!"

    "World's Most Refreshing," the late Swissair. As for "Up, Up and Away," no TAA was not what I had in mind, though the rhyme with the airline designator in the jingle would be similar, I guess. Hint: if this mystery carrier's acquirer were to pick up the slogan, it might be "Up, Up and AAway."
