If you think about it, "you are a great way to fly" is both meaningless and suggestive at the same time. It's like showing ink blot cards to people and asking them to say what the blots represent. Kudos to the marketing genius who came up with that tagline :wink:

I understand they used to recruit Singaporean and Malaysian only.

But in recent years, they have expanded to some Asia countries, like Japan, Korea, and I think Philippine.
