And TWA is now defunct too.

That game is like the Connect Four of Scrabble.
Well, the TWA name is gone, but they're now part of American Airlines. Which really sucks. TWA and Eastern should have merged when they had a chance back in the 80's.

And yeah, I thought of Connect Four, too.

I love old luggage like that; it always makes me think of how many miles it has traveled and how many places it has been. Too bad it can't be salvaged.
I tried to at least pull off the Eastern sticker (my mom wanted it), but it was pretty much fused to the luggage. Funny thing is, I actually have some old TWA, Northwest, and Continental boarding passes in my scrapbooks! And somewhere in one of my mom's old boxes that never got unpacked, I have little TWA and Eastern junior wing pins. Do airlines even give stuff like that to kids anymore? Just another added expense they won't bother with now, I guess.
Yes, JetBlue gives out wings. They even let my son Ian go into the cockpit before they closed the door. This happen on our most recent flight to DisneyWorld.
More science, less fear.
