I remember along time ago hearing the United "song" on TV and the radio. Do they still use that (Rapshody in Blue) in their marketing?? I have seen "747 Braniff Place" and their crazy dressed F/A's. What other wacky adverts have you ran across?? What did some former airlines advertise?? Did Pan Am have a song?? Eastern, National, Republic?? How did they advertise?

Southwest definitely has a strong marketing program. Billboards in the cities they serve include:

"Austin Auften"
"More Dallas Touchdowns"
"More Liftoffs to Houston"
"Phoenix Phast"
"LAX A.S.A.P."

Check out there website and you can view some of their advertisements from the early seventies to the present. I highly recommend it.

Some airlines advertised on airplane parts such as air brakes. A pax would be sitting next to the wing and close to landing she'd see "Fly Eastern" or something like this on an air brake.

Of course this especially worked well after the aircraft was sold without telling the new owner about it. The message would be hidden except when the brakes were used.
