Second Airplane Baby Named Connie

planeThis is the second airplane baby named Connie that I know of, believe it or not. She was born 40 years after the first.

The morning of May 19, 1996, Nguyet Pham gave birth to a baby girl in the bathroom of Continental Airlines flight 1435, traveling from Chicago to Cleveland.

The baby was named Nancy Connie — Connie after Continental.

  1. There is another one from 1965: Barbara Lufthansa Herzog, born on a flight to New York (guess the airline!).

    She must have had some press in germany, because Seibicke cites her in “Historisches Deutsches Vornamenbuch”, quoting Ztg. [Zeitung] as source.

  2. Great find — thank you!

    I’m looking her up in old US newspapers right now. Not finding anything from 1965 yet, but there are plenty of articles from 1983, when Lufthansa treated her to flight back to W. Germany to celebrate her 18th birthday.
