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…

  1. I recall reading in Lufthansa’s inflight magazine (or similar literature), that for the 2006 FIFA football world cup, LH did something similar, though not as bold as ANA ! They did some research and satisfied themselves that painting the nose of the aircraft wouldn’t harm the radar and other communications. After that, they painted quite a large portion of their aircrafts’ noses in a black and white patchwork to resemble a football !

  2. Aniruddh, I actually flew in a Lufthansa 747 with the Football (Soccer ball) nose. I wish I had taken a photograph.

    Kevin, Thanks for sharing the ‘Hello Kitty’ link.

  3. Aniruddh, Thanks for sharing the AI Express pictures. I had never seen these aircraft before.
