i found a site with lots of old airline timetables. thought it would be fun to see who could identify the airline from the slogan or tag line used in the timetable and the year used. (the year may actually cover more than one year. i'm using the year of the timetable for the year so if you get the decade correct consider it a correct answer) answers below in white. run your cursor over the "blank" area to reveal the answers

1. The World's Fair line
2. Fly the Blue Skyway
3. The Pacific Air Line
4. The air line with the BIG JETS
5. The Commuter Line
6. The GREEN and GOLD Line
7. One of America's Thirty Govt. Authorized Airlines
8. Serving the Capitals of Industry
9. The Speed of the Plane at the Cost of the Train
10. The Fair Weather Route
11. The Sunshine Network
12. Your Air Link with the World

1. american airlines 1939
2. Continental 1951
3. Southwest airways 1957
4. delta 1962
5. southeast airlines 1958
6. Mackenze Air Service 1940
7. Southwest Airways 1947
8 Pennsylvania Central Airlines 1939
9 TAT Maddux Airlines 1930
10. Standard Air Lines 1929

Those are great rw812!! Thanks for sharing them. One of my favorite airline slogans (not near as old), I remember hearing and seeing on TV when I was a kid - "Continental Airlines, the proud bird with the golden tail"
(Because of that, I was dissappointed when CO changed the livery.)

It's interesting to see how many of those aren't in business anymore.

I think one of the best that I have ever seen was from Piedmont Airlines prior to the USAirways Merger.

"Piedmont Flies The Friendly Skies"
"Piedmont, The Up and Coming Airline"
