A colleague sent me this article by email today.
Bogus copy supposedly from MAS
The image above, which has gone viral, purports to be a reproduction of an old Malaysia Airlines ad bearing the unfortunate slogan, “OUR NEW BOEING 777 – LOSE YOURSELF ON A JOURNEY OF EPIC PROPORTIONS”. It is, of course a fake.
You will note that the aircraft depicted in the ad is not a Boeing 777.
The aircraft in the picture is a double decker, and has four engines. That makes it a Airbus A380.
With a little bit of investigation, I able to find what I believe to be the original advertising copy from 2012.
Original MAS advertising copy for A380
The modification the of ad to depict the B777 and the change of the text therein, is done by somebody with far too much time on their hands, and under the present circumstances with the aircraft still missing, is in extremely poor taste!
