Holy smokes! What female aviation geek wouldn't love one of these leather retro airliner bags?

Heck, I'd even lose my virtue for this one.

Welcome Aboard indeed.

Anyway, since most guys are clueless when it comes to shopping, I'd take a gamble on your girlfriend, spouse, sister...whatever....liking one of these carry-on/carry-around charmers. Most women love funky bags.

No thank you. :=

I'd much rather get one of these instead. :hmm:

"the friendly skies"

Good slogan.

Like Peter Stuyvesant "your international passport to smoking pleasure". Really rolls off the tongue, that one.

We (vintage aviation society) have some airliner seats that I swear must have come out of one of the CP flying mandarins because they are orange. They don't know what to do with them; my idea is to build a mini-theatre using them as the seats, and show vintage aviation films to the public.

No thank you. :=

Guess I'll always be into "trash with flash." Now I'll have to find some bright 1970's seat-cover orange pants to go with the flashy TWA red bag.

We were orange on the outside (made it easier to spot at the airport) but never orange inside.

One was 'groovy' enough to purchase a PanAm bag exactly like the TWA one in the original post some months back and have thus far been pleased with it. I purchased it for mainly nostalgic reasons, but also practical ones as well. The blue of the PanAm is a little darker than i had hoped (or remembered!), but all in all i'm pleased and it is different. It's attracted quite a few positive comments from people, but as it's generally carried towards the rear, there might be a whole load of others laughing themselves silly :}

Well, now I'm intrigued. I assumed our seats came from a Canadian carrier, but maybe not.

Does anyone know of a North American airliner which had orange seat covers at one time? National and Braniff are two guesses that come to mind.

Well geeze, that was a good guess. These look like the seats!

Gosh, that brings back some memories. I never worked for them, but they trained for dozens of other airlines. 'Boeing School.' was one name for it.


I sometimes forget just how pretty that 1-11 was. Shame the Americans got rid of them, could have lead to great things for British aviation.

Oh, we're talking about handbags int we?

Not North American, but here's a cabin view with orange seats.

I have it on good authority that there are still some flying in the USA, and a sim here in the UK for pilots to refresh emergency procedures.

7 (sporadically) active 111s in the US by my count.

Orange seats - Continental or National 1980s.
