Baby Named for Flight Attendant

planeIn August of 1986, a Jordanian woman aboard an Alia Airlines flight from Chicago to Vienna gave birth to a baby girl.

Hafez Mahmoud named her baby girl Wafa, “after a stewardess who tended them.”

A spokesman said that the baby could fly free with Alia for the rest of her life, as she was born on an Alia plane, but added: “We don’t like to encourage this.”

(Later in the year, Alia–named for the eldest daughter of King Hussein–changed its name to Royal Jordanian.)
