I was just talking with my coworker in the office and we got the subject of airline jingles and slogans.

So, I thought it'd be fun to remember all the old slogans and jingles from years before. Any personal favorites? Any that stand out as the most memorable?

He (my coworker) remebered something he thought was from American "From the East to the west, we're American doing what we do best!"??? Never heard that one...? Anyone?

My favorites would have to be:

US Air:
"Because US Air Begins with You!"

Delta AirLines:
"We love to fly, and it shows..."
(I'm partial to Delta as it was my first job with an Airline)

Most of all though I love our new slogan at JetBlue:
"We like you too!"
There's a funny Flash song that can be played at:

Shouldn't this thread be in the new aviation polls and preferences forum?

I love Alaska Air's alter-ego used in its commercials. "Sky High Airlines" has some great slogans including: "Sky High Airlines, saving you money, as far as you know."

I like AF's "Faire du ciel le plus bel endroit de la terre".

Which translates into something like:

"To make the sky the most beautiful place on Earth".

I always liked DELTA's "Delta is ready when you are."

And I always liked the shots of their L1011 touching down in the ad at the end of the "Mike Douglas Show."

Another I like is Hughes Airwest's, as stated earlier.

When Pan Am featured as the operator of shuttle transfer flights to the space station in 2001: A Space Odyssey, it used the slogan The Sky is No Longer the Limit...


...subsequently 'borrowed' by airline communications company SITA which has the tagline The Sky is Not the Limit.

I forgot to mention one more I liked
was the Texas dude with the drawl saying
I'm going to Europe this summer on PanAM.
This was years ago and they got everyone saying that.

Crescent Airways "The Rythym of the South"

In my opinion, a brilliant slogan for a ficticious airline.

"Fly the Friendly Skies" is pretty much universal these days, you hear reporters apply it to air travel in general. "Which is cheaper? Hitting the highway or flying the friendly skies?" and they're not referring to United but to the general act of climbing into a metal tube with wings.

Speaking of airline jingles, is it just me or are airlines not advertising on TV much anymore? I see Southwest spots during sporting events but otherwise I haven't seen an airline commercial in years... and I put commercials on TV for a living! AirTran has several billboards here in Hampton Roads, and they advertise regularly in the newspaper, but the last time I saw an AirTran TV spot was 1999. And it's been even longer for AA, UA, US, DL...

I have to agree, though I like: "At SkyHigh Airlines, sure we're indifferent. But it's a genuine indifference. That's the key."

I love the last Lan Chile one:
"El Espiritu del Sur del Mundo" ("The Spirit of the Southern World")

The current one (since "LAN" was released in march): "El encanto de volar" ("The enchantment of flying") is too obvious...

They had great slogans in the past too: "Higher every day", "A good reason for being the best".

And also, the VS one that I watched one on the fuselage: "We have a lot more experience than our name suggest"

Alaska Airlines and their SkyHigh Airlines commercials always gave me a laugh when I used to see them....

Didn't Continental used to have "We really move our tails for you"?

Definitely, all the jingles of PSA rock. My two favorites are "Catch our Smile", and from the TV commercial "We got to be tough, to make you smile." I know, from the book "Poor Sailors Airline" that the latter was not liked by PSA'ers who didn't like the idea of being tough, but it's still a catchy tune.

I really loved jetBlue's "It's not the only way to fly, but it should be." slogan. To tell you the truth, I just don't get the new one "We like you , too." So can someone please explain how that phrase is supposed to work?
