Poor Sailor's Airline:
The Story of Kenny Friedkin's Pacific Southwest Airlines

Gary Kissel

Many an airline has been given an alternative name to match its initials; and PSA was no exception. The former British airline, B.A.O.C., was said (especially by passengers delayed at Cairo or Khartoum) to mean "Better On A Camel;" and on the North Atlantic, T.W.A. was, rather impracticably, "Try Walking Across." Some acronyms has been sarcastic, even rude; but PSA's was kinder and the description was truthful.
