What is you favourite airline slogan and why?

Mine is Mexicana´s slogan in spanish: "El placer de volar sin limites" (wich means: The pleasure of unlimited travel).
"We think the world of you" is their english slogan, but I prefer the spanish version.
How about you?


En Mexicana cumplimos 85 años de hacerte sentir el placer de volar sin limites

"El placer de volar sin limites" actually translates to...

The pleasure of flying without limits...

Still a nice slogan in any language...

I always thought that SIA slogan to be a little sexist. Stereotyping all flight attendants as being female. In a way alienating the male fa's who do a great job in sia.

Braniff: Gets you there with flying colors
jetBlue: Somebody up there likes you
Valujet: Good Times, Great Fares
Delta: We Love to fly and it shows (The old slogan)
American: Something Special in the air (The old Slogan)
Continental: Proud Bird with the Golden Tail (Old)

These are some of my favorites

I do not like:
Northwest: Some people just know how to fly

That is like saying that the other airline pilots are unprofessional.

How about some radio/tv commercials, billboards and printed ads? Here are some of my favorite oldies...

BOAC (now BA) "All over the world, BOAC, Takes good care of you"

Continental (pre-Lorenzo, of course) "We move our tail for you"

Southwest (formative years) "Fly for Peanuts" (billboard)

Texas International (in response to above, billboard) "Fly for chicken feed"

Western "You get three feet, For your two legs, On Western Airlines; Your legs go first class, When you go coach class, On Western Airlines."

Canadian pacific "Let Canadian Pacific...(jet swoosh)...Get you there" (just after introduction of transcontinental DC-8 service, Montreal-Toronto-Winnipeg-Vancouver)

American (posters inside NYC busses, subways, commuter trains): "Behind every American Airlines Astrojet to San Francisco .... (picture of an endless line of 707's, head-on) ... Is another American Airlines Astrojet to San Francisco"

Pacific Western Airlines: "Count on us" (Upon introduction of domestic 737 scheduled service. This was to counter the popular translation of their initials PWA = Please Wait Awhile)

My all-time favorite is "Wings of man" which someone mentioned above.

Brings back memories.

For billboards, I love the one Vanguard has up in Kansas City right now for service to AUS.

"Let's show our friends in Texas how to barbeque."

That Vanguard slogan isn't funny. I live in AUS, they better get some more advertising because only about 30 people are on that flight daily. Anyway I like CO's old slogan "We'll Bust Our Tails For You."

Delta-flyer mentioned one of my favorites. It was the Continental ads "We really move out tails for you." The television version was quite clever. It was a real catchy tune and their were various shots of Continental tails as the aircraft landed, took off, and taxied.

Back when Southwest first started in 1971, they had a "love" theme. Their peanuts were called "Love Bites". Their cocktails were called "Love Potions". Their automated ticketing kiosks were called "Quickie Machines". Their first print ad featured their total schedule and the slogan was "How do we love you? Let us count the ways."

In 1974, after the other airlines had moved to DFW and Southwest remained at Love Field, their slogan was "Love is still our field".

In 1978, after Southwest had inaugurated service to several more cities, their slogan was "Were Spreading Love All Over Texas."

These print ads, as well as many others, can be seen on Southwest's website at

http://www.southwest.com/about_swa/netads.html

Also, be sure and click on the link for the video ads and one of them is the TV Commercial featuring the "We're Spreading Love All Over Texas" song where the passengers sing and dance their way onto the plane.

Ahh, LoneStarMike .. you're really stirring some dead embers here.

I used to fly frequently to Texas and Louisiana during the period 1973-1978 from my home in Vancouver. I worked on some offshore oil projects. I remember all the ads you mention.

My favorite route was YVR to SEA on a PWA 737, then a CO DC-10 "Pub Flight" (remember those? Peanuts and beer for a quarter and Pong tables in the Pub at the front of Coach?) from SEA to IAH with a quick stop in DEN.

Cheers

One more thought...

The freewheeling style of Southwest, PSA and TI were possible because they were exclusively intra-state airlines and were not subject to the CAB regulations on economic issues. They could fly wherever, whenever they wanted and charge whatever they wanted. They were subject only to FAA regulations concerning safety and certification issues.

Yeah, Delta-flyer, I remember Continental advertising their Pub flights, as well as AA's piano bar on the DC-10.

You mentioned Texas International's "Fly for chicken feed" billboard. But did you know that later, Texas International also switched to a "Peanut" theme. Their Fares were called "Peanut Fares". On one of their timetables during the 1980's, they had peanuts with with wings and a tail that looked like a plane.

On another one, they had a "peanut pilot". It was a peanut wearing sunglasses and a pilot's cap. You can see what I'm talking about on this site which features images of those timetables.

LoneStarMike --

It's possible that I mixed up Souhwest and TI. Was it Sw with the chicken feed and TI with the peanuts?

I don't think Southwest ever had a chicken feed slogan, but I do vaguely remember the billboard you're talking about. Since I'm originally from Dallas, I think you might be right about the chicken feed belonging to Texas International, because it wasn't AA's, Braniff's, Continental's Delta's, Eastern's, Frontier's, or Ozark's, and besides Texas International, those were the only airlines serving Dallas, at least in the pre-DFW days.

I think it might have been TI's, but it didn't last very long, because looking at those timetables, the Peanut theme started in the spring of 1977.

Texas International had another slogan "We know the Territory".

Also, National's "I'm (Girl's Name). Fly Me." And "Watch Us Shine" was clever since their logo was the sun king. Also, "You're a National Priority."

I also like Southwest Airlines:

"(Seatbelt Sound) You are now free to move about the country"


25 Dens : "The most refreshing airlines" now it doesn't refresh anymore. That was Swissair Slogan!
26 JonPaulGeoRngo : OT - Texas International was certainly under fell under the regulatory might of the CAB having acquired routes outside texas in the late 60s and early
27 Post contains images LoneStarMike : In addition to Eastern's "The Wings of Man", they also had "At Eastern, We Have to Earn Our Wings Everyday." And waaaaay back in the prop days, advert
28 Bombayhog : I liked Sahara Airlines when I saw it last year: "Experience a New High." I found that quite funny, but also quite effective. /gwl
29 Clipper001 : Pan Am. The World's Most Experienced Airline. Fly the Finest... Fly TWA. Trans World Airlines
30 Travatl : In general, I like all airline's slogans over the years: Frontier (1969) "A Better Way to Fly" Frontier (1972) "Look at What You've Been Missing" Fron
