Airline Brand Guides/manuals

Thu Nov 15, 2012 1:41 pm

I have an interest in airline branding, and was interested to discover branding guides/manuals for both British Airways and Delta Air Lines can be viewed online.

* http://www.lime-management.com/App_T...tUK/Resources/brand_guidelines.pdf
* delta.com/StyleGuide/guide/DAL_Sec1_Basic_Brand_Elements_082707.pdf

Does anyone know of any other brand guides/manuals that can be viewed online?

The Delta guidelines are way out of date.

I also found these guidelines for a new TWA brand I've never seen before. Does someone know what these are about?

Somebody just creating their own TWA branding, of which isn't realistic using an image like that in wording. Not a fan of it at all.

Most carriers also publish an internal branding guide.
The one from NW when the Bowling Shoe Livery was introduced covered everything
from aircraft to dust bins. The current British Airways one is pretty interesting too.

They have changed a lot since my days at BN. Carriers are much more concerned
now than they were all those years ago.
