brings back old memories. I have a doctorate in business administration
in global management, and wrote my dissertation on the international
airline industry. I did not pay enough attention to Braniff at the time,
with the Southwest Airlines link. But, I now have an alternative theory,
about Southwest. That Southwest Airlines became the new Braniff International.
I may use this in a forthcoming book. WHG
Dr. William Hyatt Gordon III - New York City
worked for the best airleine company that it already existed, with great
friends and with a service of first class. I wast Sales Rep. at São
Paulo - Brazil, for 10 years and I still remember, from the deep of
my heart the whole team: Sandor " Alex " Nagy, in memorian;
J.J.Barbosa, Ronald Daker; Sr, Mello, in memoriam; Pedro; Wilson Colocero;
Tinho, Lincoln, Silvio, Penny, Yro, Lourdinha, Paulo Keller, Ana;Thomaz;
and many others. Anything will make me to forget of the good ones and
bad moments of the "CLAN BRANIFF".

I was project engineer on all the DFW facilities including Braniff Place

grew up in NYC and since I was a little boy spent many hours watching
the planes at the airports. By far the best to watch was BI. I started
to collect timetables, glasses, brochures and just about anything Braniff.
My best memory of BI was a trip to South America in '74 when I went
from NYC to Buenos Aires via Miami, Panama, Lima and Santiago, all the
way through without getting off till BA. Thanks for the website I will
visit it often.
