No-frills airlines were eating into its market share, but Eurostar had the chance to reverse its fortunes with the launch of its high-speed rail link. Using "Fly Eurostar" as the central message, Manning Gottlieb OMD used outdoor as the primary medium. Titled 96-sheets, illuminated special builds and a mock runway at London's Waterloo station supported the creative theme. Eurostar also borrowed The Daily Telegraph cartoon Alex for its own series, which was published and promoted online. The campaign's success led to £4.8 million of incremental revenue.
