Delta Air Lines advertisement titled: 'Anything but more lines', written on a tag, featuring a blurry picture of an Asian woman sitting down.

How to guess it?

Let’s start with the smaller clues. One alert reader mentioned the red triangle and the colors used in the advertisement. Another one mentioned the ad campaign style: “Passenger Request…”. But the most widely mentioned clue was the famous baggage tag “Fly ___”. The blank could be filled by nearly anything from “Home” to “For Business” to “ASAP” as in the example. What mislead many people to submit Asian airlines as answers was the apparently Asian woman in the very blurry picture in the background.
