Lively airplane liveries

What’s that up in the sky? Usually it’s an airplane painted with an airline’s standard design, or livery, which serves as an important part of a company’s brand. But these lively, often one-off airline liveries use cartoon characters, animals and other imagery to perk up the skies.

I don't care what they paint on the side of those planes.  I don't fly anymore unless I'm the pilot.  It might take me a little longer to get where I'm going but at least I don't have put up with the crappy service, the nickle and dime attitude, and the nasty passengers!

most were merely flying advertisements!  what's so cool, or original about that.  jew ad men realized long ago that they could put their crap on almost any surface from baseball stadiums to buses.  now they want to "sponser" high schools and other schools as they do with sports stadiums.  imagine, " I graduated from coca cola high school"!  just leave it to the jews to make a buck any way they can get their greedy talons into!

Plain non-painted surfaces weigh less and consume less fuel. Why is it the old ego crap always shows its ugly head?

Chug-a-lug  Doug and the boys must have stayed up all night ,  designing  the new American tail logo.

 

They could have done a one up on Southwest and put a Sperm Whale, on the tail !

 

In the airline industry we sometimes refer to disasters as an act of god,

 

but America West buying American does not fall under that category.
