Airlines Mottos

Sun Dec 10, 2000 2:52 pm

What are all the major airlines mottos???
Like Delta's was "On Top of The World", AA "Something special in the Air", UA "Rising"(They could have done better than that), NW "Some People Just Know How To Fly", Continental "Work Hard, Fly Right", TWA "One Mission. Yours"(Now that's pretty sad!) BAW "The World's Favourite Airline".

What are some of the others???

Horizon Air is Wings of the Great Northwest. They have their Dash 8s named "The Great City of....." or "The Great Cities of....." and then one of their desitnations. Alaska is "For the same price you just get more" but looking at their latest numbers it should be "Please fly with us......"

Cubana: "Somos de las primeras" We are of the first
AOM: "Et le monde vous sourit" (roughly) you and the world smile
BWIA: Your vacation starts here
Air Jamaica: The best airline to the Carribean
Varig: "Varig com voce no novo milenio" (Roughly) Varig is flying you into the new milenium"

Meanwhile, "Beyond your imagination" of KAL, without any erasing or addition of one character, could be twisted. haha. and some more, just fun!

As for the Aeroflot marketing guys, there's also something like "The airline that unites East and West".
In Germany there is the inofficial motto "Wer den Tod nicht scheut fliegt mit Hapag-Lloyd", which means roghly "Who is not affraid of dying flies with Hapag-Lloyd". Of course this can also be adapted for Aero Lloyd...

Alitalia Correction

Mon Dec 11, 2000 6:26 pm

Hi,
just a correction about Alitalia's motto: One Ticket to the World was the Wing motto.
Alitalia one is : "vi porteremo ovunque" : "We'll bring you everywhere".

Ciao

Stefano

P.S.
A thought came to my mind: possibly the previous motto is used abroad?

Written on Virgin Atlantic's aircraft is "Britain's Flag Carrier". Is this their motto?
I know it used to be "Fly Virgin".
