The White House press corps, hit by escalating travel costs and the demise of its longtime charter airline, may have found an unlikely white knight: Trans World Air. lines. After Delta took over some Pan Am routes last summer, Pan Am continued flying domestic press charters. But Delta spurned the overseas hauls. For Bush's recent European trip, the White House scribes turned to Evergreen International Aviation, a no-frills outfit from McMinnville, Ore. Along comes TWA, with a surprisingly low bid for Bush's upcoming Asian trip. The fares can run higher than first class, but the service is first class, too: "Just like the good old days," said a newsman.
