Guess The Airline – April 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.

This time, I am amazed by how many people got it right, with the few clues that were out there. You did an excellent job at pinpoiting the airline behind this mysterious and downright suggestive advertisement. Once again: this is an ad published in magazines in the United States in the 1960s. Ready? Scroll down!

American Airlines advertisement titled: 'Think of her as your mother', from the 1960s, featuring a seductive-looking flight attendant on a chair.

How to guess it?

There weren’t many clues, actually. There was the uniform, which was a little bit too modern and mislead some people into submitting Braniff International. The font of the title was also a major clue (see the December 2003 game.) But above all, the wording: (..blank..) way. What other airline uses the word “way” in such a… way?


Correct answers: 68% | Wrong answers: 32% | Most submitted wrong answer: United (10%) | Other answers submitted: Air France, Braniff International, British Airways, Continental, Eastern, National, Northwest Orient, Pan Am, SkyEurope, TWA, Western.
