Different airline have given their aircraft interesting livery for different reasons. They may add unique livery to:
Advertise – the Alliance they are a part of.
Promote – such as Alaska Airlines promoting Wildlife in Alaska or Continental promoting New York City a few years ago.
Advertise – like Southwest and the plane for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue
Show support for a home town – like US Airways has a Carolina Panthers aircraft
or just be unique.
There are many instances of airline painting their aircraft in unique schemes. Southwest has a plane painted up as Shamu the Whale, Alaska Airlines has one painted as a large Salmon fish.
But, All Nippon Airlines (ANA) takes the cake with their Pokemon themed aircraft livery. Enjoy…
If anyone has seen other unique livery, please leave a comment and share.
