Default I need authenication on this I think...Braniff Item!

I just purchased this Tiki cup with the wording Braniff Intl. Were these used on 747 service to Hawaii?

This is a Leilani Tiki Mug, used by many companies in the 60s and 70s. Braniff did use them. Take a look on the following website that documents Leilani Tikis:

Hi Craig,

Use the Braniff 747-127 (N501BN) by Dragon Wings to display with your Braniff Tiki cup. This aircraft flew the Dallas/Hawaii route.

I have the Gemini Club and the Big Bird of those! Sold my Dragon long ago as the color was off. And never got the rerelease of Jet-X on that one. Thanks for the tip. Didn't the SP also go those routes? Will put Big Orange on it anyway.

Didn't one of the the Brady' kids find one of these taboo items, thought it was his good luck charm, and instead all it did was bring bad luck to him?

I have many Tikis! But I did take lava from the Big Island once. I then returned that. Anyway any South Pacific island you will find these for sell from New Zealand, Easter Island and Hawaii.

Craig,

It was N601BN (747 Braniff Place) as you know, NOT N501BN! 501 was the FLIGHT NUMBER DFW-HONOLULU.

Braniff began flying the Hawaii route with a Boeing 707-327C (Orange) in 1969.

Yes, These TIKI Mugs were in-flight giveaways on Hawaii routes.

SPs were not used on the Hawaii route, they were used on the SE Asia routes.

Thanks! This is the correct information I was looking for and I knew you would have it.

Thanks! I have all Gemini 747 releases Big Birds and a few of the Jet-X what ifs, green, red, and blue. But the ones I love the most have ties to the collection I have of real items I have found on line of Braniff. I have a Caldar coffee cup from the DC-8-62 and dove gl***** and stem ware. Also found a cheese crock of Braniff. I have more items then that but I really need to photograph them!

Hi BraniffPages,

Thanks for that swift kick in the ***. I needed it. I looked in my Braniff (An Illustrated History) book by Cearley and sure enough, it is as you said: N601BN.
I'll still keep the Dragon jet. Warts and all. I posted a picture below of my pseudo Love Field.

That's a big 10-4 on the 707-327C Green by Jet-X. Unfortunately, Jet-X didn't do their homework on this model. The registration number that they applied to this aircraft was N7100. According to the Braniff Color Chart in Braniff (An Illustrated History), this aircraft never saw a two-tone paint job. Braniff had sold this jet in April of '71. It was N7104 that saw the green two-tone paint job. N7104 was sold in August of '73.

You are correct on that. N7100 was in "Panagra Green," but not in the two-tone. Well spotted.
