    by TWA Flight 284

    He has gone to New York by TWA Flight 284.
    Is the preposition 'by' correctly used in this sentence?

    Thank you in advance.

    It is clearly understood, and the old Latin via would certainly work, but we would tend to say he is on TWA Flight 284, if there were a TWA any longer.
