What was your favorite, now defunct airline?
Hard to pick anyone but Continental Airlines. Loved their fleet and attention to detail. They were great on the east coast.

Yes...we always had to go through St Louis. Coming back from england in December we flew into Chicago and landed when it was 10 degrees. Hard exit onto the runway ....no gate. Flew to st Louis and had a 5 hour delay. Got on a plane to Nola and the pilot told us he couldn't take off until they deiced us. After an hour an he told us eff it....fasten your seat belts....

Piedmont.

They gave you almonds and full soft drink cans. Then got swallowed by Allegheny to become USAir. Peanuts and tiny cups of soda.

I do miss TWA and can remember flying as a youngster from Kansas City to St. Louis on a TWA Constellation in the mid 1960's. Also miss Continental - they were good. My aunt was a stewardess for them and often flew our troops to and from Vietnam.
