Behind the ScenesEdit
- The logo is similar to one of the Pan-American Airways' logo.
- A baggage tag for Apollo Air can be seen on Kaitlin Greenbriar's luggage in the the video game Gone Home. The game takes place in 1995, implying continued service from Europe to the United States. The developers of the Fullbright Company, Steve Gaynor, Karla Zimonja, and Johnnemann Nordhagen, worked together on Minerva's Den. In an interview, Gaynor linked the two games together:
- “The airline that Katie takes to go to Europe, we never named the airline, but their logo is an ‘80s brand update to the airline that Jack’s plane crashes into Rapture. So in a completely unenforceable way, theoretically, we have caused all of these universes to coexist.”
