Guess The Airline – November/December 2002 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 Guess The Airline was very particular because it was the first one ever to feature an advertisement in a foreign language. This helped most users, although it shouldn’t have, and mislead many others. The following is 2002 magazine ad featured in a popular French-language magazine from Quebec, Canada, called L’Actualité. Ready? Scroll down!

Air France advertisement from the year 2002, featuring a woman whose hair is brushed by the wind, featuring the Montreal-Paris flight.

“Montreal – Paris, twice a day, all year long. See your travel agent or go to our website.”

How to guess it?

Most people guessed it because of the TV campaign with the same theme of the little airplane integrating itself with the environment. (See the Air France TV commercial called “Le Passage”) Other people guessed correctly by noticing the tiny Skyteam logo on the bottom left corner of the picture. The space for the destination (about 5 or 6 characters) and the fact that this airline flies twice a day from Montreal would make the task easier. Many people thought that, because our ad was in French, it HAD to be a French airline. I can only say, this was a happy coincidence.

And may I end by saying that I had several positive comments about the model on the picture. I even had a “no-answer” because the viewer was too concentrated on commenting about the pretty lady!
