I remember the BOAC jingle form the late 60's, "BOAC takes good care of you". Heard this as a kid living in the west end of Toronto. Still can't find it these days.

And who can forget this British Airways commercial if they are old enough to remember it:

When I lived in Tehran back in the very early sixties, we kids called BOAC "Better On A Camel" and TWA as "Try Walking Awhile", as we much preferred Pan American (PAA) which is how nearly all of us flew into Mehrabad Airport. :cool:

I won't reveal what we line service guys at BA used to call TWA across the other Maintenance hangar🤣

Another UK airline I miss is British Caledonian.  My one and only flight on a BAC-111 was between Gatwick and Amsterdam in 1984 at a cruising altitude of only 23,000 feet.  It was a thrill to fly what was by then a classic aircraft on its way out of common use.
