View Full Version : Unofficial Airline motto

26th Jun 2001, 11:17
In the Aviation industry we all complain about different companies from time to time, and occasionally certain ones are branded with an unfortunate unofficial company motto by it's own employees. I thought it would be fun to hear a few from around the world, it's not necessary to mention company names, just the basic reason for the motto.

The one I have in mind flies mostly Beech 1900s in the US, and occasionally angers some of it's passengers ( what Airline doesn't? ), anyhow someone within the company at one time decided the company motto should be " XXXX Airlines, pissing off the world, 19 people at a time "

As a side note, I have both purchased tickets, and jumpseated with this company quite a few times in recent years, and have had nothing but good experiences with them.

This one would probably apply to most airlines :

Semper in faecibus, sumus sole, profundum variat.

I will hazard a guess at "Always in the **** , its only the depth that varies"

Am I close?

From a long time ago; far, far away.

Braniff, the worlds largest, unscheduled airline.

Bibendum Ad Mortem? Does that meant "The Michelin Man is dead?"
