WALTER JOHNSON

SALES & MARKETING


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!

PRESIDENT NIXON
FLEW ONA



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?

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?
