I've Never Seen So Many Airline Ads

Fri Jan 09, 2004 8:26 am

Is it just me, or are the airlines advertising more now than they have in the past few years?

While waiting to see my friendly Dentist this afternoon, I was looking through the front section of USA Today. In that one section, there were FULL page ads from Northwest, Delta, American and USAirways.

Here in Detroit, Northwest has run a large newspaper ad (a beautiful ad showing a 747-400 in the new colors) at least 3 times in the past 2 weeks.

And Tuesday, in the morning Detroit paper, United/Lufthansa ran what I believe is one of the best looking ads I have ever seen....this one took up two full pages and had a beautiful color picture across the top showing the New Year's Eve celebration in New York City.

The ads are promoting each carrier's Winter/New Year's fare sale....and, there are some very good prices out there.

Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.....
