For a time there was a famous beach & bath towel that was made of the very same design for this classic vintage Trans World Airlines Seat Occupied Place Card. Printed in black, red and gold on one side of this plastic card reads "Sorry..this seat is Occupied!" with translations in French, Spanish and Italian.
This particular seat occupied card was used for several years without a change in design so the exact year is hard to determine, however based on the famous TWA "twin globe" logo, this card is still at least 26 years old, if not older. Form 44-0147(2-64). Perfect item or gift for any TWA employee or any airline memorabilia or aviation enthusiast!
