Guess The Airline – November 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.

So, have you done well in November, people? Not really. Tsk, tsk, tsk. This was an ad published in a United States magazine between 1995 and 1999, and submitted by an visitor, Will R. Ready? Scroll down!

Aloha Airlines advertisement from the 1990s, featuring two hands and a man standing in front of an Aloha Boeing 737.

How to guess it?

The clues were difficult to find in this ad. One of them was the Boeing 737-200 fleet clearly visible. In the mid-1990s, this airline had only that type of aircraft (before acquiring New Generation 737s for their trans-Pacific routes). Some clues regarding the actual color scheme are visible on the picture: white fuselage, dark tail and belly. You can also check out the slogan “Expect more” used at the time by the airline, as well as its identity of the plane flying in an oval-depicted sky. It was difficult to guess Aloha Airlines indeed, but some people, a minority, managed to do so anyway!
