Airline Themes/Slogans?

Fri Nov 08, 2002 1:43 pm

What are some of the old and new themes and slogans from current and past airlines? I can think of a few!

Delta: "We love to fly, and it shows." "You'll love the way we fly."

American: " Something special in the air."

Southwest: "You are now free to move about the counrty."

AirTran: "Your airline has arrived."

Continental: "Work Hard, Fly Right."

USAir: "USAir.....USAir......begins with you."

United: "Rising"

Piedmont: "The up and coming airline." "Route of the pacemaker."

Eastwind: "The Beeline to lower fares."

Eastern: "Wings of man."

Hmm...these are some that I can think of!  Smile Any more? Have fun!
Oh! International airlines too!!

Pan Am - "World's Most Experienced Airline"
Continental - "The Proud Bird With The Golden Tail"
Delta - "Delta Is Always Ready When You Are"

The proposed merger would have resulted in: "World's Most Experienced Tail, That Is Always Ready When You Are"

Wasn't the old National "Come Fly Me"?

Of course, fly was just a cover for F*ck.

Vanguard's was "You'll like where we're going."

And the original Branniff (Branniff from the 1930s, folded in, like, 1934) had something about Kansas City to Dallas in six hours or something like that. Big deal about being twice as fast as a train.

I rather liked the Air Canada slogan used in the past,
"Above and Beyond". Very simple, yet classy.

Also, growing up, my siblings and I would sing the old BOAC slogan,
"B O A C takes good care of yooooouuu!".

And then there was the last slogan/marketing campaign of the now
defunct Canadi>n Airlines International, "Proud Wings".

At my former carrier (as an FA) Worldways, our crews "spelled out" exactly
what Worldways was (in good-hearted jest)"

I remember seeing this slogan for American Eagle in the eighties. I have not seen it since???? I assume American Eagle started using American Airlines theme.


American Eagle "Something special in your hometown".

I think this was great slogan when American Eagle was a commuter airline. Now American Eagle is all over the country.

PSA also had, "Our smiles aren't just painted on." I notice that US Airways is starting to come out with some new slogans. They seem to be using the "Wings" theme similar to Eastern. "Philadelphia's Wings to the Carribean". "Pittsburgh's Wings to the West." They also have one that for now seems dedicated to employees "Together We Fly."
