Guess The Airline – January 2005 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.

I’m glad people found sense in their answers, when submitting their guess for this moderately difficult game. After all, this was not a major player in the Asian aviation scene. We remind you this is an ad published in this airline’s inflight magazine and submitted by a long-time visitor like you. As a clue, we also said that the airline is in Asia, but not in a country recently affected by the tsunami on December 26, 2004. Ready? Scroll down!

Royal Nepal Airlines advertisement titled: '45 years of glorious service', from the year 2004, featuring a Boeing 757 and several destination pictures.

How to guess it?

The easiest way to guess it was by looking at the Boeing 757-200 on the picture, and it’s obvious front cargo door. This airline is the only operator of this aircraft model in a mixed passenger-cargo configuration… in the whole world. But also, it was all in the country code of the fax number, which I intentionally left out: 977 is for Nepal. What else? Oh, all the destinations. But that’s just cosmetic. The real clues were out there, people! And for the most part, you did find them. Except for all the people who submitted all these colorful airline choices who, for the most part, don’t even fly the Boeing 757! There is no “most submitted wrong answer” this time because none of these wrong answers stood out this month.
