Guess The Airline – April 2009 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.

Eastern Air Lines advertisement from the year 1986, about 'The alternative to Europe', featuring a purple sky with mountains and a L-1011 silhouette flying by.

But the wings logo and the slogan, “We Earn Our Wings Every Day”, could only mean one possibility: Eastern Airlines.
