4.Solari Split Flap Sign Will Show Past and Fictional Airlines

With major transportation switching departure signs to digital, like Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station, it’s comforting to see that the TWA Hotel has opted to revert back to the Solari split flap signs. There will be two in the TWA Hotel, used for messages and announcements.  One overlooks the tarmac and one is by the information desk. Don’t be surprised to find flights shown on the board for defunct airlines from the Jet Age, like Pan Am, Republic, TWA, or even some surprise fictional airlines.

There was another programmable Solari sign in the TWA Lounge at 1 World Trade Center as well, and we were excited to be able to provide a custom message for our Untapped Cities Insiders for an event we did there.
