Supposed to be a vintage (1930's) poster for Eastern Airlines New York to Miami service "just 10 hours from N.Y.!". Notice something funny? It's a china eastern A320 and logo in the print! I've seen a lot of these replicas, but someone really didn't know what they were doing!

That is pretty sad. If it was real, I might consider buying it as decoration for my bathroom... oooh lala, maybe this one:

Don't think it's a comedy peice, I've seen the post before on ebay, just looks like someone tried to go a step further but screwed up in the end haha.

Now, that Alaska one would make a great bathroom peice!

The polar bear would probably look happier if he was facing the other way.  Smile

at least if they got an eastern airliner a/c they would have been on the right track...

What planet are they from? First of all, a aircraft with the wrong livery and then an aircraft that can't even go 10 hours without refueling. WOW  Big grin

They may be idiots but they got $8.50 for it so fair play to them.

Wow, only 10 hours on an A320 from NY to Miami! Isn't it amazing how quickly jet transport is changing?


Holy sh*ts and burritos.

I know I know I'm being reak pedantic here - but I emailed the seller to ask if they were aware:
=====
Hi there - is this meant to be a joke poster? If not - the logo you show is of
China Eastern Airlines who are a Chinese airline, and the aircraft is
of a China Eastern A320 - less than 15 years old and with a maximum non stop
range of about 4 hours - let alone 10!
=====

The reply I got was confusing:

=====
Chinese beach holiday baby!
=====

?????

Not unique in the world of consumercrap. Skyjunk, I mean Skymall used to have "replica" business cards of famous people. Their "Amelia Earhart" business card had a swept-tail Cessna single on it. Amelia died in 1937.

A flight school ad in aviation magazines a few years ago had a painting of a plane that looked a lot like a DC-3 except that it had thirty or forty windows down one side of the cabin. DC-3 had seven. Just your basic hundred-passenger DC-3 I suppose. Another ad of the time had a jet airliner only it had no engines. None under the wings, none on the tail.

A google search gone bad...

Maybe 10 hours from New York to Miami Beach, China - a suburb of Beijing...

Subliminal advertising to get you to fly China Eastern

Thats a Macchi MC72 racing seaplane in the Alaska poster, never strayed beyond Lake Garda in Italy.
Its a great looking plane, but I'm definitely sure it never came close to Alaska!



I dont know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone
