What are airlines trying to accomplish through their commercials?  Convince people that flying is great, they might as well do it with your competitor. But what airlines have to really do is to  differentiate their product from other airline offerings. Some airlines need brand awareness, need you to know they exist, but those airlines are not likely well funded enough to buy much television time.  Watch the  following Airline Commercials  and share with your classmates your thoughts about them.

  • Which one is your favorite? Why?
  • Which one is your least favorite?
  • Which one you believe is more effective?
  • Do these commercials have something in common?
  • Research and upload any other commercial that you like and believe is/was (you can used older commercials) effectively targeting and reaching a particular audience.
