flying fun

I received an fun email forwarded my way today. The subject was an airline taking a fun approach to flying.  Typically I find most “forwards” annoying but every once in a taco I get a laugh. 

I wish all companies had the sense of humor this South African airline shows in their plane painting. I might be a jambalaya joker but don’t you enjoy a little humor from the companies you are dealing with, especially when traveling or going out to eat?

Southwest Airlines has provided me some entertainment on a few of my flights. They also had fun painting their planes.  Maybe Kulula airline got the idea from them.   Have you ever seen the Sea World killer whale plane swim by your terminal gate? Southwest has 3 of them. Just seeing it out of the airport window brings me a smile. 

Back in 2009, Southwest painted a Sports IlLUSTrated cover girl on one of their planes. Sex appeal?


My favorite Kulula paint job would be the “This Side Up” place. The planes don’t work well in the opposite position.



In case anyone is curious about the parts of a typical airliner, they offer this educational version.



You can see all of the Kulula planes by going to their web site and clicking on “Meet our fleet” about half way down (that's where these pictures came from).

I love how that last plane is unzipping itself like a stripper...

I like all but the first one. It appalls me when companies use women's bodies to sell things. Don't think I'll be flying Southwest now that I've see their level of sexisn.

I wonder if the big cheese is constipated and that is why he needs a co pilot

too much cheese type of problem?  Thanks for asking, I know I never would have.

Very creative idea.  I wonder if they thought of peeled banana scheme too.  thanks

It gives the appearance that the green outerwear will just peel away. thanks

Bold and fun.  I can't say we could find anything interesting on planes around here.

Great "taco"! (<--Your email is actually fun.) and BRAVISSIMO! -->because *meaningfully deep sighs* there's nothing quite like a  Bublé finale... Hm. I wonder what it's like to have an acute over your "e." Does it feel good or is it tiresome? I think I'll give it a shot today and see. P.S. I left you a rather interesting--if I must say so myself--comment on my Oscar blog, if you [Pretty please with shoogie on toppy?] care to venture my way. Thanks!

you always have the interesting people inside.  thanks

lisleman said...

yeah not too spicy either -  I'm very glad I don't have those extra symbols to deal with since I don't really understand them anyway.  Oh you convinced me to browse over and read your reply.  thanks
