Favourite airline adverts?Back to Forum
AnonymousGuest28 Mar 2012
The fifth series of Mad Men started this week, and in the UK the ad breaks during the first episode were filled with archive 1960’s adverts, among which was this offering from American Airlines.
Do you have a favourite airline ad, past or present?28 Mar 2012
I like the simplicity of this advert, for Concorde:
It used to appear on british-airways.com in the days of dial up internet!
Those interested in vintage BOAC/BEA posters can order them from the BA Heritage Collection:
Many originals are viewable in the Galleries lounge in T5.28 Mar 2012
It was indeed the Caledonian ad I remembered. The Concorde ad which VK posted was also beautiful. The other favourite from the halcyon days of my childhood was..
Funny how flying seemed so glamorous back then – although a cursory look at the BCal cabin shows that in fact, it probably wasn’t.28 Mar 2012
Having grown up in London, I can really only remember the BOAC ads, though no specific ones. Funnily what I do remember the most are the ads for the Union Castle Line. It was my dream to travel on one of their ships with their posters of exotic destinations you could only read and dream about.
Thanks for the link for the posters VK. Now placing my order!28 Mar 2012
I used to enjoy the humour in commercials before it became spin spin spin.
I believe this shows Peter Sellers protraying a well known poster who I shall not name, though not a BA commercial…28 Mar 2012
This topic has been on my mind all day, Rich yours was mega funny!!!..lol 😉 Strange how even though there are lots airlines all over the world hardly any are shown on the telly.
My fav has to be this one :o)
Apart from the Virgin and BA ads shown in the last year no others come to mind. So i did a search and only this one comes to mind 😉
