Guess The Airline – November 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 decided to give you visitors a break this month with a fairly easy advertisement. Of course, there’s always the batch of wrong answers, but at least it’s satisfying to see people recognize the clues behind an advertisement. One last time, have a look at this advertisement published on a Time Asia issue of the late 1990s. Ready? Scroll down!

United Airlines advertisement titled: 'May cause drowsiness', from the late 1990s, featuring airline seats wrapped as if they were sleeping pills.

How to guess it?

The only clues were in the name structure, the font and the slogan. The class is called (…airline name…) BusinessSM. The airline is a leader in Asia, explaining its placement in the Asian edition of a popular news magazine from the United States, plus a member of Star Alliance. Above all, the slogan: “Rising”, part of United Airlines’ ad campaign in the late 1990s.
