Whoopsie! Ad Supporting Boeing Shows Airbus Plane

The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce admits to cringe-worthy mistake


The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce put up an ad to persuade Boeing (BA) to build the new 777X in Washington but they used the wrong picture.

The full-page ad in The Seattle Times was asking lawmakers to pass a package that would help convince the company to build the plane but they used a picture of an Airbus plane, according to Chicago Sun-Times. The newspaper’s headline said “The Future of Washington” but the Chamber made the boneheaded move of putting the wrong company on the ad.

“It’s an embarrassing, cringe-worthy error,” said Chamber spokeswoman Terri Hiroshima. Ironically enough, Boeing had a gaffe of its own yesterday when it landed one of its planes in the wrong airport.
