Hello All,
a good friend of mine who works at Boeing has asked me to see if anyone can think up of good quotes to promote the 747 in 2004. I presume it will be in a pamphlet. If anyone knows, or can think up of any please let me know, all assistance would be appreciated, and you might even be famous!!!
Thanks a lot

"The World's Connection"
"Bigger Technology, Smaller World"
"Transport of the Skies"
"Bridge to the World"

And for humor's sake, "Bubble in the Air," "Strato-bus," "Bloated 777"  Big thumbs up

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Sean Merritt

Do you mean along the lines of "I laughed until I stopped"...or "It's a game of two halves" ... or "It won't be over until the final whistle".

Seriously....are Seattle so devoid of good customer feedback they're resorting to a chatboard for good quotes of their products to put in a pamphlet?!?

OK... "It's BIG" - there, that'll do them for another 2 years. Now where's my fee?

Yeah well I guess they want something new, something fresh from the general public. I guess Boeing is desperate, but what to do!

I highly doubt any rhetoric I spew would make Boeing's publications, but do let me know if anything could be used. Even if nothing is, I'd like to know what they end up choosing.  Big thumbs up

Cheers!

sure thing, personally I don;t really care what they choose, I guess if it sounds catchy to me, then it should work for them. I guess if they are resorting to the general public for help, then the must be pretty desperate!!!!
Cheers

...which is of course great, unless your Boeing is stuck at the gate and U/S because of some technical problem...

(not in anyway an anti-boeing, pro-airbus comment either...it can happen to both of 'em)

Well, Lymanm, thats crap, because Boeing would have to advertise the 777-300ER then with "Please buy the most overpriced product in civil aviation industry" too!

And the "highest operating cost" thing is bull****. The 744 flies, at high loads, cheaper than the 777!
