Guess The Airline – October 2011 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 an issue of The Economist of 1983. Are you ready? Scroll down!

Eastern Air Lines advertisement titled: 'Only our name is Eastern', from the year 1983, featuring a Boeing 757 and a route map.

How to guess it?

It may have been hard to figure out that the name of this airline was a word indicating a direction. But you could pay close attention to the fact that the aircraft was a Boeing 757, which was fairly new at the time (and which this airline was the first to order, along with British Airways). The route map, with hubs in Atlanta and Miami, was also a good indication. The slogan was “America’s favorite way to fly”, which was easy to find on a search engine. Finally, there were all the OTHER directions the text was pointing to: North, West and South. Which one was left? East, as in Eastern!
