  • This American Airlines poster by the artist Bencathy was created for the 1964 World’s Fair, which was held in New York City. In this poster we see the famous Unisphere in front of a stylized cityscape. The Unisphere served to introduce people to the concept of the international exhibits that were to be displayed. That same globe in the image today still exists in Queens, outside of Manhattan and stands at the entrance to the Arthur Ashe Tennis Center where the U.S. Open is played every summer.
     
    American Airlines is a major airline based in Fort Worth, Texas. The company was founded in 1926 as a union of more than eighty small airlines and is the world’s largest airline. American Airlines is a founding member of One World Alliance, the largest airline alliance in the world. Through this partnership they are able to coordinate fares and services with Airlines around the world. In 2001, they acquired the well-known Transatlantic Airlines. They still operate today out of ten major hubs in the United States.
