Well, driving home from my grandma's place on Saturday, I pass by FNT on I-75 and look overhead at the arriving AirTran 717. Looking closer, it was the one with Elton John on the side! What luck huh? ARrival time was after 12 noon.. didn't look at the exact time.

FLAIRPORT- Down boy..

i could care less. I don't like anyone right now and that includes Elton John. Besides, I've seen that plane enough.

On another note, I'm tracking HOOTERS AIR....its coming to FLL in under an hour!

I saw that thing at MSP twice on May 5th. It even did a go-around during its second appearance due to an incoming thunderstorm/wind shear.

According to AirTran's website, there are roughly 20 717's with EJ's likeness. According to the the press release archive on their site, there's a way to track where each of the EJ's are. I haven't been able to find it after a couple minutes of looking.

Quoting Tom in NO (Reply 4):

There was way to track it when there were only a few of them around. They were being routed to specific markets on specific days for press purposes. But now that we are up to 20, its business as usual for these airplanes. By that I mean that they are swapped back and forth just like the rest of the fleet and trying to track them would be impossible.

Most all of the Air Tran 717's coming into HOU have Elton on them. At least that's what I have been seeing lately.

I'm just about sick of seeing them at ATL now....  Smile

On a related note, how come they didn't flop his mug on the new color scheme a/c? Is this going to be a short lived promotion? I'm assuming these are just decal/prints?

Yeah there's a bunch of those suckers flying around. If you wait at an airport FL serves you're pretty much guranteed to see one at some point in the day.
