American Airways to American Airlines –
  The Ads Tell a Story

Part Two

 

This week we continue our series on American Airlines this week but we are going to let the ads (advertisements) of the time tell the story. Enjoy………………….

During the forties/fifties American used the type of ads, shown above, to tell the world that they carry more passengers than any other airline in the world. If you say it enough people will begin to buy what you are selling. The following pages contain full page ads that are nicely done and very typical of the time.

 

Next week we continue our series on American Airlines but I will return to our story and fill in a few more blanks about their history. I hope you will enjoy this look back in time and as always take a few minutes each day to reflect back on your roots as an aviator and help me identify what we as “Gatekeepers of the Third Dimension” need to do to protect our profession.

The preceding ads are presented for educational purposes and cannot be reproduced or used for any other purpose.
