A friend recently passed along an article to me regarding the unusual and bad names of airlines world-wide. Some interesting and bad airline names:
- Wizz Air. This Hungary-based airline’s name makes me want to go to the bathroom.
- Vanilla Air. Formerly AirAsia, Vanilla Air was recently rebranded with this name because apparently, “everyone likes vanilla.”
- Hooters Air. I always found this airline concept, ahem, interesting. Beer, wings, and short-shorts at 35,000 feet? Um, okay.
For me, the most unusual airline name that I have flown was SmartWings, when I flew from Prague, Czech Republic to Nice, France. SmartWings is a brand of the air transport company Travel Service, a.s., and is considered to be the largest low-cost air carrier in the Czech Republic.
What is the weirdest name of an airline you have flown on?
