Guess The Airline – August 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 Time magazine issue, circa late 1970s. As you remember from the June 2003 game, this was not the only airline to proudly advertise its new Full Fare Economy Class (or Executive Class). Did you have any idea what airline it could be? American? Northwest? Pan Am? TWA? Now scroll down!

TWA Trans World Airlines advertisement from the 1970s, featuring Full Fare Coach class.

How to guess it?

Okay, so I said that the airline no longer exists. Let’s take a look at the clues more closely. The text below the main title mentions that the airline flies domestic and international routes. Looking closely at the simplified seating map on the lower left corner, you realize it looks quite like a Boeing 747. Did I mention that this airline no longer exists?

TWA it was yesterday. Today it is American Airlines.
