Turkish Airlines’ heart is in the right place, but the timing of a new billboard is untimely, to put it nicely…
During my last trip from LAX, I parked on Century Boulevard near the In-N-Out Burger and walked to the airport. As I entered the employee parking lot next to LAXit, I looked up and noticed a new billboard from Turkish Airlines:
“Time To Meet Again”
Oh, this is sentiment that I concur with. In theory, though. Not practice. That’s because borders are still closed, the vaccination has not been rolled out to adequate levels, and the virus continues to spread at alarming rates, particularly in Los Angeles.
Still, I do look forward to that day when it is time to meet again. I greatly look forward to that day.
This is not the first advertising snafu Turkish Airlines has encountered. Remember the escalator ad from a decade ago? Instead of climbing high into the sky the plane was crashing into the ground.
I’m not “offended” by this Turkish Airlines ad…oh how it it is time to meet again. But should an airline be trying to sell tickets now by saying “time to meet again?” That seems a bit premature to me…
