Royal Jordanian airlines engaged in online banter once again, this time advertising for flights to the United States after a US court suspended the 'Muslim ban'.
Marketing staff at Jordan's national airliner maintained flying spirits this week despite a controversial Muslim travel ban that troubled much of the globe.

Royal Jordanian Airlines launched a fresh round of advertising on social media, with an obvious dig at US President Donald Trump's recently suspended travel ban that targeted seven Muslim-majority nations.

"Fly to the US with RJ now that you're allowed to," the Royal Jordanian ad reads, along with a heading that wittily changed the word "Ban" to "Bon Voyage!"

But the airliner's banter-filled advertising is clearly not a one-off-wonder.

A tweet sent out on the US Election Day in November garnered thousands of retweets and likes for its tongue-in-cheek reference to then Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"Just in case he wins… Travel to the US while you're still allowed to!" Royal Jordanian's official account tweeted, referring to Trump's campaign comments suggesting a ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Royal Jordanian was just one of many airlines to announce it will allow previously-barred nationals from Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Somalia Sudan and Iran to fly to the United States after a US court decision suspended Trump's controversial travel order.
