Guess The Airline – February 2001 answer

Every month, an airline printed advertisement, minus airline name and logo, is displayed for your guessing pleasure on Guess The Airline. The following is the answer to a previous game.

This is the exact opposite of last month’s game. Sure, we have an incredible participation rate for this Guess The Airline, just like last time. But now, 96% of all people submitted a correct answer! Perhaps this game was a bit too easy. Anyway, here goes a very short explanation… and at long last, for your viewing pleasure, the full version of the ad. This advertisement was taken from a mid-1990s issue of Frequent Flyer, the monthly magazine for OAG Flight Guides subscribers. Scroll down!

Qantas advertisement titled: 'These airlines will give you a lot of credit for flying Qantas', from the year 1995, featuring many frequent flyer program cards from other airlines.

How to guess it?

Of course, everybody submitted Qantas. It was simply a matter of seeing which airline has or had the following airlines as partners… before joining OneWorld: Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Canadian Airlines (RIP), Continental Airlines and USAir (now USAirways). And which airline could fly to the Australia and South Pacific. Sure, another option would have been Air New Zealand, or maybe even Ansett. But the name doesn’t fit the very small grey box masking the airline’s name. Well done, everyone!
