The Best Airbus A380 Advertisement Yet

April 30, 2012 at 11:06 AM | by | ()

SPOTTED! Perhaps the best advertising for an airline's Airbus A380 service...so far.

The A380 is a double-decker airplane. This is a double-decker tram. We bet China Southern considered doing up the ad to make the tram look like an airplane, but that would take a little too much imagination from people who maybe catch a glimpse of the thing as it rolls through their peripheral vision.

China Southern has been flying the superjumbos since October 2011, and their inaugural routes were Beijing-Shanghai and Beijing-Guangzhou. The latter, you see, is just over the border from Hong Kong. Hong Kong is where we spotted this ad-bedecked tram, running the rails near the Sheung Wan MTR stop. Other trams were sporting ads for Dior and Shanghai Tang, but this one stood out for its blue cloud swirls. Roll on, A380 tram. Roll on.

How much do you want to bet that British Airways is taking notes for London's doubledecker buses?
