Guess The Airline – January 2012 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 from a 1971 issue of The Economist for an airline which no longer exists. Are you ready? Scroll down!

British European Airways advertisement titled: ‘BEA. Right to the heart of Eastern Europe’, featuring an airliner landing in the Red Square in Moscow.

How to guess it?

The introductory text said that the airline no longer exists, which means that it couldn’t possibly be Aeroflot. Plus, it was a Hawker Siddeley Trident operator. I think that alone was sufficient to guess that it was British European Airways (BEA), which merged with British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in 1974 to become British Airways.
