Guess The Airline – May 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.

Honestly, a lot of visitors like you (and even myself) thought this might be a 100% good answers game. But as always, there are some people who don’t pick up the obvious clues. It happens! Once again, this was an advertisement published in a 1978 issue of Time Magazine. Ready? Scroll down!

American Airlines advertisement titled: 'You get what you pay for', from the year 1978, featuring many features of full-fare coach class.

How to guess it?

Surprisingly, a few people got it wrong!

  • The colors of the aircraft were unmistakable, even in black and white.
  • Above all, the “DC10 LuxuryLiner” was undeniably American Airlines.
  • This is a sad reminder that the advertisement was published before the crash of Flight 191 on May 23, 1979, which further damaged the reputation of the DC-10 and caused American Airlines to replace the “DC10 LuxuryLiner” markings with the generic “American Airlines LuxuryLiner”.
