After 9/11


With all the years that have passed, it’s easy to forget how badly the airline industry was rocked by the events of 9/11.  People were afraid to fly.  Carriers lost billions of dollars and some, such as Canada 3000, never recovered.

The airlines had to do something.  American Airlines put together 2 TV commercials that attempted to once again instill the confidence that had been lost.


Update:  While poking around, I came across this British Airways ad from 1983.  The use of the Manhattan skyline with the Twin Towers prominently displayed now just come across as very, very sad.
