Vintage Airline Commercials and Ads

American Airlines Vintage Ad
We’re glued to Mad Men with the rest of you on Sunday nights and were just as bummed as Don and crew when Sterling Cooper didn’t win the American Airlines account. For those who can’t get enough of the sexist times or don’t really believe it was as bad as the show makes it out to be, check out this compilation of humorous airline commercials from Travel and Leisure. Fortunately, enough time has gone by that we can laugh at the once offensive “Take Her Along” ad from United Airlines where women plead with their hubbies to be allowed to go on the trip. Really? We mean, REALLY? Thank God we live in a time when women can travel–with and without their men!
