#JusJoJan: Friendship

JezzieG came up with today’s prompt: “friendship.” The first thing that came to mind? Travel.

Back in the mid 1970’s, United Airlines (“Fly The Friendly Skies”) started calling their flights “Friendship Service.” During the preflight announcement, they would announce (for example) “Welcome aboard United Airlines flight 352, Friendship Service now to New York LaGuardia Airport.” It was like PanAm, which featured “Clipper Service.” I think all the airlines had it. I wonder if Aeroflot (“On Aeroflot, in-flight movie watches you!”) had “Comrade Service”?

Speaking of Aeroflot,

There are all kinds of airline commercials and preflight videos on YouTube. Enjoy…

    1. These are excellent! QANTAS did a series of commercials for the US that featured a koala who hated the airline for bringing so many people to Australia. The voice was supplied by Howard Morris, who’s one of the funniest people to ever walk the earth…
