I am feeling a bit nostalgic this week, following my recent @United Airline Classic Commercial post earlier. #TWA holds a special place in my heart, even though I only flew them on one trip – my first trip to Europe on a Spring Break Trip to Southern Europe (road trip from Madrid to Rome).
Check out this Classic TWA Commercial from 1976, touting their new L-1011 Planes.
What’s great about this commercial:
- Assume this commercial was directed to the west coast audience since they consistently bring up flights to the east.
- “Built for comfort, its seats are extra wide with special thick cushions” – too bad the seats now are narrow and the passengers are the ones who are extra wide.
- “Now, TWA serves you a delicious steak in coach on all 1011 meal flights to the east.” I doubt the deliciousness of the steak though. What was served on the westbound flights – did the schedule only allow for breakfast service?
