Guess The Airline – July 2003 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 was an ad published in a magazine of the 1980s. During the game, we mentioned that the airline was never mentioned before in Guess The Airline and that it no longer exists. So, what could it be? Braniff? Delta? Eastern? Pan Am? Go ahead and scroll down!

Braniff International Airways advertisement titled: 'There's something new in the air over Atlanta', from the 1980s, featuring Boeing 727 aircraft and a route map.

How to guess it?

Good question. The clues are so rare in this ad that we litterally had to give you some in our small pre-advertisement text. So, airline no longer exists, and airline never mentioned before. So far, so good. Now, it’s only a matter of remembering which airline… OTHER than Delta Air Lines had a major presence in Atlanta, and in the countries displayed in the text and route map. Look closely at all the routes converging in Texas, and in Lima, Peru. And the massive formation of Boeing 727 aircraft reminds you of anything? Braniff International was the answer.


Correct answers: 31% | Wrong answers: 69% | Most submitted wrong answer: Delta (27%) | Other answers submitted: Air Atlanta, AirTran, American, Atlanta Airlines (sic), Continental, Eastern, Pan Am, Southeast, TWA, Western.
