Neat little Promotional item from TRANS WORLD AIRLINES in form of a small Indian brass slipper...just 3 1/2" 1 1/2" in size. Trans World Airlines (TWA) was an American airline from 1925 until bought out by and merged with American Airlines in 2001. TWA was a major domestic airline in the United States and the main U.S.-based competitor of Pan American World Airways (Pan Am) on intercontinental routes from 1946 until deregulation in 1978. Flying to most major U.S. cities, TWA was one of the largest domestic airlines; before deregulation TWA, American Airlines, United Airlines, and Eastern Air Lines were known as the "Big Four". They also had a feeder operation from smaller cities in the Midwestern United States. Beyond the U.S., TWA had a large European and Middle Eastern network, served from their hub, the iconic TWA Flight Center, at John F. Kennedy International Airport. For a few years their routes circumnavigated the globe. TWA was a secondary unofficial flag carrier for the United States, especially after Pan Am was dissolved in the early 1990s.
