Best & Worst Airline Tagline/Slogan

Most airlines give a lot of importance to it's tagline/slogan. Many airlines have had a number of of taglines, though few airlines prefer not to have one.
I hope this has not been discussed earlier.

I like United's 'Come fly the airline that's uniting the world. Come fly the friendly skies.' Sounds nice.

The worst i've found is Air Sahara's 'Emotionally Yours'.

What are your choices?

I always liked Hughes Airwest's "Top banana in the West" line from late '70s. And Western's "The only way to fly".

American´s "AA-everything" is annoing and NOT creative.

Avianca´s, "La aerolínea de Colombia" is really classy.

Continental´s "Work hard, fly right" is really catchy.

AeroRepublica tried to copy the "La aerolínea de Colombia" slogan, i did not work out well, so it was pathetic to see a 10 aircraft operation claiming themselves as the airline of a country with 40-45 million inhabitants (we wont be sure until the 2005 census)

Delta Airlines... "Good Goes Around"

WTF? I don't want to go-around, I want to land! It makes absolutely no sense at all.



After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

What is Delta, a Merry-go-Round, or an airline?
What was wrong with the slogan..."We Love To Fly And It Shows"..? That was a classic.

United's "Come Fly The Friendly Skies" should still be used today! That just rolls off the tongue, and is memorable to all generations, even the young!,
Honorable Mention goes to the already mentioned "Top Banana in The West" used by Hughes Air West.

Who was The WORLD's Most Respected Airline?

Although not a fan of Southwest, I do like there ad tagline "got to get away?" When you see a goofy embarrassing ad, you know it is coming.

Even better fom SWA is the slogan from the "pilot" - you are now free to move about the country. Very clever IMO.

#1 - "Up, up and away on TWA" (with commercials sung by the 5th Dimension)
#2 - "You get three feet for your two legs on Western Airlines" (I can still sing the tune, but you'd rather I not)
#3 - "Please, no dancing in the aisles" - Olympic Airways circa 1960s

Cheers.

My current favorite is the WN: "Want to get away?" My answer is always, "Yes, and right now!"

Western's "The only way to fly," is still one of my all-time favorites as well as Continental's "The proud bird with the golden tail".

"Good Goes Around"

As far as service goes... it should read: "for good [service] turn around"

TAM is very nice: "The Red Carpet Airline"

BTW, does RG has slogan? I have no idea.

I remember a not so old Varig slogan, "Acima de tudo, você"...meaning something like "Above everything, you"

Also former LAN slogan "El espíritu del sur del mundo"-"The spirit of the south of the world"

Alitalia's "Vi porteremo ovunque"-"We will take you everywhere"

And I don't know if it is their slogan, but Finnair's "Most experienced in northern skies" is great.

Some classics of the past:
Eastern: The Wings of Man
National, the one taken over by Pan Am had in the 1970's had ads that went: "I'm (first name of a female f/a), fly me!"
PanAm (jingle): "Pan Am Makes The Going Great.."
Continential in the 1970's-80's: "The Proud Bird With The Golden Tail"

Isn't Southwest's slogan actually "A Symbol of Freedom"?

I like America West's older slogan "Every Flight Counts". It seemed like more of an internal slogan when they were having their operational difficulties... but it also told the customer the same thing. Their new one "Get On Board" is ok, but seems like its missing something...
