Guess The Airline – February 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 1979 issue of The Economist. Are you ready? Scroll down!

Thai Airways International advertisement titled: 'Coming Soon', featuring an elephant on an airport runway covered with a blanket.

How to guess it?

According to the text on the advertisement, this airline was introducing the Boeing 747 in 1979. So it couldn’t be Air India, which introduced that aircraft type in 1971, nor Singapore Airlines, which took delivery of its first 747 aircraft in 1973 (both according to Wikipedia).  But the major clue here was the blurred-out logo on the blanket. In my opinion, it didn’t look like anything among the possible answers than Thai Airways International.
