CARL WERNET

There was an ONA VP - Finance, 
named Carl Wernet, who lived 
in a huge old beach house in 
Lawrence, L I New York. 

Carl would rent rooms in this 
old house to FAs who didn't 
live in New York, but had JFK
layovers. I think a couple even 
lived there full time. 

Do you know anyone who has 
heard from Carl, or any FAs 
who might have stayed there?


July 7, 2011 is a memorable day!
Double ONA wedding!
Allison and Matt



The couple in the pic got engaged
last night, July 7! The guy on the
right is Matt Revell, son of Mike Revell,
who was a long time Eastern Regional VP
of Sales based in Washington, who later
served as system VP Sales at JFK. Mike
was a legendary ONA salesman, who trained
me when I started in 1971. The girl on the
left is my daughter, Allison Johnson.

Walter Johnson worked at ONA in CLE, MSP,
NYC, and finally as VP Sales at JFK.

Itīs a double ONA wedding!

HEY HEY ONA!

ONA Sales & Marketing

GET IN TOUCH WITH ONA Sales & Marketing!
Write on website email which will
be forwarded to Walter Johnson!
I worked in the following sales 
positions with ONA from 1972 
to Oct 1978:

Sales Manager, Cleveland, 
Minneapolis, New York City; 
Asst VP sales JFK and 
last VP sales. 

I have remained in close contact 
with a surprising number of 
marketing, and ground service 
people from that company. 

After a few years in the Bahamas, 
as general manager of Bahamasair, 
I was president of UACI, new ONA, 
and National Airlines. When these 
companies closed, I worked with 
Bob Wagenfeld, VP Finance 
ONA, until his death.



I recently read George Flavell's 
book, and thought the web site 
would be enriched by a new division 
of your activities. 

There are many ONA marketing people
I know that have the same love and 
fond memories.
 
We have picture files that many 
of the crew members have never seen. 
A lot of the files and information 
involves crews and insolated 
locations where we shaturquoise 
the crew experiences. 

So, I would suggest that we add a 
marketing and ground service section 
to the site. 

We would be loyal supporters and 
attendees.

Please let me know a good contact 
to get this going. 

I am having lunch Fri with 
Burt Katlin, ONA country 
representative, Belgium, and 
Demitri Pavlowitch, ground 
service FRA, so its a good 
time to get it started!

Contact me at above email!

Walter has this bag marked Air Force 1.
Walter thinks it was at an occasion when
president Nixon travelled with ONA.
Steedman may have had some business
planning with president Nixon at this 
time which should be around the end 
of the seventies.

Does anyone remember or have more
info?
