Midcentury Braniff Airlines Advertising


Way back in the day, when traveling by air was glamorous, Braniff Airlines (1928-1982) had a series of TV advertisements featuring -- well -- oddball pairings of celebrities. You can see what I mean. Here are a few examples, with Andy Warhol and Sonny Liston;

Ethel Merman and Bennett Cerf;


and Sonny Liston and Salvador Dali. These were all part of Braniff International's ad campaign featuring the "When You Got It, Flaunt It" slogan.



Braniff also prided itself on the flight experience, and emphasized its stewardesses in its advertising.

The World Stewardess Crews site has a photo-filed piece on the Pucci-designed Braniff flight attendant uniforms here. Lotsa midcenturymodern goodness!
