Sky High Airlines

2003-10-01 16:06:12.599104+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

I forget where I picked up Sky High Airlines ("The mission of SkyHigh Airlines is to be laser-focused on total customer satisfaction, among many, many other things."), but besides being a funny site, I noticed a number of references to Alaska Airlines, and I wonder if this is the future of advertising. For instance, from the Super Scrimper Fares page:

DISCLAIMER: For those unable to devote 3-4 weeks travel time, you could theoretically try alaskaair.com. They have low fares and Web Specials. And you can fly in a jet. Whoop-dee-doo.

It doesn't occur often enough to make me sure that it's a sponsored site, and yet...

Bingo. Duh. Should've checked myself. I'm so used to bogus whois records that I don't bother any more.

Heh. Yeah, there were just enough subtle references to Alaska Air in the site to make me pretty sure.

Oddly, this works for me. They've entertained me without being duplicitous, so that's quality advertising.
