Guess The Airline – April 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 1976 issue of Fortune for an airline which no longer exists. The name of the airline has been hidden everywhere. Are you ready? Scroll down!

Eastern Air Lines advertisement titled: 'A cold cup of coffee does exactly the same thing as a frown', featuring an airline president standing in front of an aircraft door with five employees.

How to guess it?

A little research may have helped figure out which airline Frank Borman was president of at the time this advertisement was published. Or perhaps the colors of the uniforms or of the cheatline on the fuselage? Or was it all in the slogan “The Wings of Man”? Or for those who were familiar with airline advertisements of the time, perhaps this ad campaign rang a bell (visit my friend Greg’s website, under Airline Advertisements for more ads).
