Guess The Airline – August 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.

For once, the route map of this Guess The Airline was not hidden and was relatively easy to pinpoint. However, many people submitted erroneous answers. Kudos to everyone who had good notions of geography! This was an ad published in a Frequent Flyer issue of the mid-1990s. So, scroll down!

Finnair advertisement from the year 1995, featuring a promotion to win a pocket-sized TV set.

How to guess it?

One good clue was, of course, the route map. Now, try to pinpoint where the hub of this airline is. No, it’s not Italy, nor France, nor the Netherlands…although it’s a close call. Look in Scandinavia. Now, this leaves you either Braathens, Finnair, or SAS. Among this happy trio, which airline flies the DC-10 or MD-11, as depicted here? Actually the MD-11, according to the image caption? And which airline has 1-800-950-5000 as its reservations number? Finnair, of course!
