Guess The Airline – July 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.

Some advertisements have the very same style over and over again, according to the airline, and many viewers understood that perfectly in this game. Or maybe some simply saw this advertisement when it was actually published, in the mid-1960s. We remind you this was a magazine ad published in an National Geographic magazine, United States edition. Ready? Scroll down!

United Airlines advertisement titled: 'Our Song', from the 1960s, featuring the music sheet of the song 'Take me along'.

How to guess it?

The main clue here was the font. This font has been widely used in this airline’s advertisements in the 1960s, and later on in their fleet in tghe 1970s. If you have been a long-time Guess The Airline player, perhaps you remember seeing it in the February 2000 game. The “Take Me Along” campaign had been widely advertised in the mid-1960s, and was even mentioned in an urban legend. In part thanks to that particular site at Snopes.com, or simply because some were old enough to have seen the ad when it was run in several magazines, viewers have identified the precise year: 1967!

A piece of advice for those concerned: please be careful of the airline you submit and look at the year or decade featured in the clues. If you look at the statistics, you will see two airlines that didn’t exist in 1967: Song and Southwest!
