Cape Verde airline TACV
doesn't like its logo appearing on Januscz Tichoniuk's bag
The airline has threatened the Polish
baggist with "all
necessary steps" if he does not remove the logo.
Strange that the airline is concerned
about its corporate identity in eastern Europe: TACV does not
fly to Poland. And when bagophily.com's team of investigators
visited the carrier's website,
it was down: "Server does not exist or access denied".
Maybe the airline's executives should focus more on its online
availability to potential passengers, and less on people who
steal its bags?
In a gesture of solidarity with Janusz,
we reproduce the TACV logo on the left.
TACV is not the first bag purveyor to
threaten a baggist with legal action. Airsicknessbags.com
proprietor Steve Silberberg
reports he received a letter from a vice-president of the US
cable channel A&E,
threatening various unspecified actions if he did not remove a promotional
bag from his site. He responded by suggesting that the media
might be interested in the story: "TV network sues barf bag
collector". Sadly, A&E did not pursue the case.
