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.
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.

#3 - "Please, no dancing in the aisles" - Olympic Airways circa 1960s

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...
