ABC Wednesday - U is for Ugly

u_ugly_billboard_close
Found this ABC Wednesday U several weeks ago, thank goodness. I've been so caught up in the Rose Festival fun that I would have missed it if I'd waited. The billboard has been changed to one advertising a near-by casino. Come to think of it, that could represent ugly, too, to those who lose too much money there, couldn't it?

Anyway, here's what I found online about the Ugly Route Map:

The West Most™ Schedule
131 Daily Nonstops

Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air now offer even more daily nonstops between Washington or Oregon and California. In fact, we have 39 more than all other airlines combined (not that we're counting). With the West Most schedule, you can fly when you want and choose convenient service to 16 California airports from the Pacific North West.

On top of the West Most schedule, you'll get everyday low fares, an award-winning Mileage Plan, and that famous Alaska Airlines customer service.

What's more, we're continuously working to create great offers for you, so check back often to see what's new.

I have to say they sound convinced, don't they?

If you're of a mind to, please go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place for loads of other ABC Wednesday blogs! Look at the list of links per Mr. Linky.

Ha! I was looking for some ugly shots. Kind of a desperate week...U.

Fantastic catch for U. I like the church steeple in the background.

Am I an idiot? I saw this recently and didn't understand what was so ugly about the route map!

Paulie said...

Not sure I understand the ugly of that post because I really like and use Alaska Airlines.

Like this a lot. Never heard of an ugly route map. What a fantastic idea.
Very creative.

I understand about seeing something and thinking about ABC Wednesday! LOL! Bring on the V!

Jim said...

Ugly may be the prices. I would guess they are going up like all of the rest.

You mean you don't have to stop in Atlanta on this airline??? :)

I like the fact that everybody has something else!

Alaska Air has a history of unusually clever ads. Good "U" post!

"Louis" thanks you for visiting San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

Well, I haven't had to get on an airplane in many years, but I think it would really be an "U"gly experience if I really needed to...

Clever and interesting 'u' post. Nicely done!
Happy Wednesday!

Petunia said...

Great choice for U and for ugly!

Neva said...

I am enjoying the U posts today...this one is funny! While mine is nowhere near as unique as yours never the less, mine is here.

Texas Travelers said...

It's an ugly U but great photos.

U come visit,

Convinced, yes. But it doesn't make much sense to me.

But then, I'm the one who took three reads to get the joke on the graduation card:

Why do graduates throw their hats in the air?

Because teachers weigh too much.
