Over at AdWeek there’s an article and a quiz on old airline logos. I scored 70%, ‘cos as you know I am a prince… And an old one at that. Anyway, it reminded me of my Mad Man days when I was working on the Trans-Caribbean Airlines account (long since gone) I was sat in one of their planes at La Guardia, waiting to take off, I looked out over the wing and under the company logo of a palm tree, I could see the faint painted over logo of American Airlines, as I continued looking, underneath that I could see the very faint logo of Pan-Am. Shit, I thought… I am on a third hand airplane, should I get off… Fuck it… I’m going to Jamaica to get laid… So I ordered another drink!
See what thin paint and weak glues does for you!
