20 Distinguished World Airlines – and the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy – have selected

THE CONSTELLATION & SUPER CONSTELLATION

On every continent of the world leading airlines fly the famous Constellation. Today more people fly over more oceans and continents on the Constellations of these great airlines than on any other modern airplane. It is also the leader on the most traveled route, the North Atlantic. This successful operation by international airlines established the Constellation’s record for dependable performance—leading to the development of the new Super Constellation, today’s finest transport airplane. Altogether 20 distinguished airlines have selected the Constellation and Super Constellation. Whenever or wherever you travel, insist on the dependable service of these airline leaders.* If there is no local airline office, see your travel agent.

    I love playing “how many of these airlines are still in business” game with ads like these.

    L.I.P. (Land In Peace) TWA, Eastern, Pan Am, Chicago & Southern, Seaboard & Eastern, Capital, and probably a few others I’ve never heard of.

    @ Rick Auricchio – They used to have a Constellation as a “Gate Guard” at the Constellation Hotel out by the Airport, interesting looking plane, but they’re both gone now.

    @Stephen Edwards: BOAC was rolled into the still-operational British Airways.
