TAMi - baby born at 24,000ft. What's yours called?

"""""""Birth on Bolivian plane; baby gets free flights

(AP) – 6 days ago

LA PAZ, Bolivia — A Bolivian airline is giving free flights to a child born on one of its airliners.

Spokesman Jerry Holters says the girl was born two weeks early as the Transportes Aereos Militares plane headed toward La Paz at an altitude of 24,000 feet on Sunday. A doctor and a nurse who were passengers on the flight helped out.

Holters says the military-run commercial airline known as TAM will give the child free domestic flights until she reaches age 21. She'll also get a scholarship through high school at a Bolivian Air Force school.

The child is named Tami in honor of the airline. She and her mother were in good condition at a local hospital on Tuesday.""""

===============

Tami, eh? Great that she gets free flights etc., but not sure about the product placement. Still, could have been worse, if her mum had chosen another airline....

Hi...

Tami?, a rather unfortunate name i think considering that the word passenger is often shortened to PAX !!, just a thought :-)

Regards

Dave
