Beer Ad Makes Airline Surly

Your Next Discount FlightHere at the Liquor Snob offices, we love Bud Light's Real Men of Genius ads. We listen to them and laugh and laugh, sometimes until Bud Light squirts right out our noses. That's why we perked up when we read an article from CNN stating the latest one, "Mr. Discount Airline Pilot Guy," has discount airline AirTran in a huff.

(The ad) includes such taunts as "Your minimal experience flying a plane will never land you at a reputable airline. Luckily, you don't work for one" and "You put the fly in fly-by-night operation."

The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the story Monday, said AirTran Airways is considering dropping Bud and Bud Light beer from its flights unless Anheuser apologizes.

Oh no, a discount airline might stop serving Budweiser products on its flights? How will Anheuser Busch ever recover from that? Listen up, AirTran, just like the ad points out, your customer base is willing take 12 extra connections to save nine bucks. How much beer could they actually be buying?

Read the full article at CNN Money, plus you can listen to Mr. Discount Airline Pilot Guy at putfile.
