Cameroon Airlines: Monday Service Douala-Lagos-Paris, April 1994

A phone card of some 18 years vintage, which advertises late-classic Cameroon Airlines, specifically its Monday service from Douala to Paris via Lagos, on a massive B747. Possible onward service (via connecting carriers, it doesn't explicitly mention) is offered to over 200 destinations, while the map samples Frankfurt, London, and New York. However, Paris's location is more accurate if it were Prague; "Francfort" is shown as being somewhere in Western Kazakhstan; while "Londres" is placed about two-thirds of the way between Helsinki and Murmansk. L'envol sur le Monde, the tagline beckons-- "take-off to the world."
