  93. This is a great contest…so much fun reading the other entries!

    My entry is for Singapore Airlines:

    Sinapore Airlines – Let the Flight be the Destination

  94. KLM – KEEP LEAVING on the MINUTE !!!

  95. SAS – Sweet and Sexy !!

  96. Holiday Inn (MLB partner):
    Your home field advantage while on the road.

  97. My pick would be Singapore Airlines.
    “Oh honey, Suite welcomes me onboard”

  98. Brand: Emirates
    Slogan: “Feel right at home”

    Explanation: A simple yet literal slogan when it comes to Emirates First Class on the A380. Passengers find all the comforts of home with their own private ‘room’ (suite), which has a grand comfy bed, a widescreen TV with an enormous selection of movies and TV shows, restaurant-quality food (that’s saying a lot for airplane food) and don’t forget – the ability to shower in a full-size bathroom to really freshen up after a good night’s sleep.

  99. Delta: We love to fly and it shows,
    when we see you in the throes,
    of seeing the value of Sky Pesos,
    that we never really disclose.
    We smile while you see the others and juxtapose,
    coming to the realization our program really blows.

  100. Delta: TV commercial starts with a passenger seated in an older business class seat that only reclines 150 degrees. Passenger tries to recline but can’t get it to go flat. They try to sleep, but keep tossing and turning unable to get comfortable.

    Voice over comes in and says “sometimes to go up, you have to go down.” Video cuts to new flat bed seating and passenger sleeping soundly. Voice over continues, “Introducing flat bed seating on our transoceanic aircraft. Already standard on our 747s and 777s, we are continuing to improve our product to let you arrive to your destination fully rested to be able to work or explore. And no more waking up your neighbor for that middle of the night bathroom trip as all of our new seats have direct aisle access. Delta Airlines…Keep Climbing.”

  101. Jennifer Gorman Patton | October 21, 2012 at 1:46 pm |

    United Airlines: Follow the Leader.

  102. Somsubhra Maity | October 21, 2012 at 5:18 pm |

    Starwood Hotels
    “Reach for the stars. It’s easy. We do it all the time!”

  103. Erica Scott | October 21, 2012 at 5:24 pm |

    Priority Club
    “Business or pleasure, your comfort and satisfaction is our only priority.”

  104. Southwest Airlines: LUV is in the Air.

    So many possibilities with advertising that slogan!

  105. For Alamo car rental:
    With prices so low, you’ll remember the ALAMO!
