Delta Center (Salt Lake City)
United Center (Chicago)
American Airlines Arena (Miami)
Continental Airlines Arena (Jersey)
TWA Dome (Saint Louis)
America West Arena (Phoenix)
USAir Arena (Maryland, is it still standing?)
What about NW or WN?
Maybe jetBlue should try for the new arena going up in Newark.
With the new retractable roof football stadium going up in Houston, maybe Continental or Southwest? (Rumored to be host for 2004 Super Bowl)

I think most of those airlines either own the arena/stadium or have paid BIG BUCKS to get their name on it for a certain period of time.
I'm not sure Southwest would spring for that. They're good at flying and running an airline, and I think they'll stick with the philosophy of "doing what we're good at" instead of branching out into arenas and stadia. Besides, they're already "the official airline" of several organizations (NHL?)

You forgot the new American Airlines Center currently under construction in Dallas, Texas.
Also, the Selwyn Theatre in New York City has been renamed the American Airlines Theatre. It's on the New 42nd Street.
The Washington Wizards no longer play at the US Air Center, but rather at the new MCI Center. I don't think its been ripped down.
The retractable roof baseball stadium in Houston is Enron Field.
The retractable roof baseball stadium in Denver is Coors Field, so unlikely the football one will carry the same corporate sponser.
Other corporate sponsers:
Tropicana, Pro Player, Turner Broadcasting, Ericcson, Phillips, Alltell, MCI, FleetBoston, Bush Beer, First Union, Key Bank, Coors, Pepsi, GM, Bank One, Comerica, Staples, National Car Rental.
If you think that's not enough, in November, the taxpayers will be voting on a third! new stadium, this one for the Rockets and a future? NHL team. This time, the vote is expected to pass. Maybe the Continental Airlines Center?

The beatifull American Airlines centre down town! It looks really nice and it is being designed by the same architect who did the ball park in arlington. American has computerized pics of the interior and it is supposed to have an aviation theme to it aswell. Next year when I go to a stars game(which is not to rare) I will tell you how it is. I am glad that the new arena is being named for my favorite airline(thats the only reason I like it!)
Redngold- If i am right, the national airline of the NHL is AirCanada.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...
