I think that was George Lois behind that campaign. Here's a Braniff page. I suppose they'd be yesterday's Jet Blue?

Ah...Braniff. I remember just before they went under, they sent my dad's luggage to South America instead of Austin with him and never found it. Had his best pair of Lucchese boots in that luggage, and before they paid him for it, they went bankrupt and he never got a dime from them.
