YouTube Us Your Favourite Airline Ad!

Sun Aug 23, 2009 9:20 am

After reading the latest thread on the revival of the ISCAH campaign by QF, I couldn't resist broadcasting an ad or two from the sadly defunct Ansett Australia. I used to love sitting in an A320 at HBA en route to SYD listening to Storms in Africa played over the PA, like in this ad:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3Yo58-6sc8

And, of course, Vanessa Amorossi's attempt to resuscitate what would shortly thereafter be a bankrupted airline. It's kind of ironic how the B767s featured in some of the scenes are the ones which were grounded at Christmas and then the following Easter, doing nothing to help AN haul itself back on to its feet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F75v...laynext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=6

So post your favourite airline commercial!

I love this one (sorry about the bad quality, but....)

"I have flown with you, and with you, and with you.... With you not yet...."
It gives the perspective from the F/A point of view. Love it.

I really like this one for AA, too. It inspires a lot of confidence at a time when there probably wasn't much.

I like the Vanessa Amorossi AN too!
I also like the newQF one too;

I must say though I am particularly fond of the post Sept 11th AA ones, they may be a tad over the top but even though I am Australian and not American I certainly appreciate their sentiment!

Its this lady's first time ever to fly, and she is excited and equally scared - and it goes with their motto... when was the last time you did something for the first time... and slogan... keep discovering... (or in some cases, keep recovering - their Y seats are horrible!)

The old Delta ad from 1994.

One of the best commercials ever made, IMO.

Also, the American one from after 9/11. Very powerful.

I always loved TZ's "You're On Vacation" commercials, but I couldn't seem to find any.

I did however find these, and have to think if the UA of today were more like they were 15 years ago, I would actually feel proud of my hometown airline

 thumbsup  Good ol Delta and the timeless widget livery!

Although I think the French version is better, tone of the voice in the English version is so "gay"...

Anyway, the best comment on YouTube under the Delta ad: "if i can look out the window and see dolphins id be pissed"

A very classic one, and you have to love the music:

But still the best for me is clearly the mosh pit parody of America West, unfortunately, missing in youtube...
