I started with PI in ROA in late 1963 on the ramp, later moving inside to Resv/Tkt Counter for a year. There was a red-headed lady who would show up at the counter and want a "round trip ticket on the next flight". She didn't care where it was going as long as she could get back to ROA the same day. Depending on what time of day she showed up, we would send her to DCA, CVG, ATL, or, if later in the day, just to LYH, CHO, or RIC. After I xfered to BNA in 1968 I would occasionally see her deplane and then board the next flight back to ROA. She would sometimes do this 3-4 times a week! I still remember her name. She lived to be very old, and was still flying PI at the time of the merger.
