First off I want to say this was not created by a NW employee nor is it confirmed to be one when their first 787 arrives, but this certainly has a sense of creative talent that I certainly admire. I did not make it, but I believe this is worth sharing.

I'm a little blown away with that. Very cool. Good idea, too. I know most a.netters think the gen pop would call every airliner a 747 or 737, but, consumers will respond to "we have the latest" I think it's a great way to stimulate demand.

Quoting NW748i (Reply 7): As a born and raised Detroiter, I do not recell ever having seen NW advertise on TV. Why is this? Did they just figure that word was already on the street and everybody knows what they're all about?
Not many US airlines advertise on TV these days. Yet load factors are higher than they have ever been on all carriers, so it appears they don't have to. TV advertising is very expensive and the airlines are a low margin industry.

There were a few NW TV ads a couple of years ago. They were filmed in DTW at the WorldGateway about a year after it opened or so. A friend of my mine worked for NW at the time in the marketing department and told me they were going to be shown in some of the bigger markets. I remember seeing them on Detroit stations. Not sure where else.
