Guess The Airline – May 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.

Once again, this was an advertisement published on a Maclean’s issue of 1986. Are you ready? Scroll down!

Canadian Pacific Air Lines advertisement titled: 'This way to the world', from the year 1986, featuring a DC-10 and supporting Expo 86.

How to guess it?

The introductory text, as well as the advertisement’s text mentioned that the color scheme had been changed in 1986. It can almost be recognized even when blurred. The text also mentions the airline (or its parent company) have been in the hospitality business for over 100 years (CP Hotels). The company is also the official airline of Expo 86, which was held in Vancouver. The slogan could have been of assistance too. Those were the clues to point towards… Canadian Pacific Air Lines, as it was known back then, which then became Canadian Airlines, before merging into Air Canada.
