Guess The Airline – May 2004 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.

It’s such a pity that many people completely overlooked the clue that specifically said in the submission form that this airline was NOT based in Hawaii! Otherwise, most people did very well!

United Airlines advertisement titled: 'Hawaii. The way the world is supposed to be', from the 1980s, featuring Hawaiian children in traditional attire.
