Guess The Airline – April 2007 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.

Once again, this was an advertisement published in a 1989 issue of The Atlantic Advocate, a magazine distributed in Eastern Canada. Ready? Scroll down!

Air Canada advertisement about taking you places 'with flying colours', from the year 1989, featuring a smiling woman with a list of destinations.

How to guess it?

Contrary to popular belief, this was not an impossible game:

  • The submission form said the airline still existed (in despite of some confusion on the initial few days).
  • Therefore, it could NOT be Braniff, in despite of the “Flying colors” mention.
  • It wasn’t Flying Colors either because “the name of the airline is hidden everywhere.”
  • At some point, the airline flew to all the destinations listed.
  • The colors of the strips could help.
  • The location of the magazine where this ad was featured was a fairly easy clue. Now, can you picture many airlines advertising on a magazine made for Eastern Canada and therefore, having flights out of Eastern Canada?
