Looks fair to reasonable.

I preferred the 757 . . . .

My apologies, that title confused me.

However, I think this one should stay up since the other title is a little confusing if you are looking for the new Cardinals plane.

Agreed, the other thread is about the disappearance of the America West 2008 Superbowl Champion Arizona Cardinals themejet. The new plane is nice enough to warrant its own thread!

Why is the new US only using A319s for the Themejets?

Only one minor complaint, would it have killed them to put the AZ Cardinal head decal on the engines too?



Keep on truckin'...

They probably still will. Everyone knows that US repaints all of its logojets about two weeks after they first come out.

Of course I'm exaggerating a bit, but they did do that with the PSA, Allegheny, and Piedmont jets - so who knows? It could happen.

319s make it to a larger number or markets than other models?

Don't be sorry.... this deserves to be a new thread of it's own. The other thread was on its way out and was NOT focused on the new aircraft: N837AW.

I agree.

I also think it'd look better on a longer plane. It makes the A319 look stumpy.



Inspiration, move me brightly!

I'm sure about that one, though it would be cool for a theme plane to land in europe. Thats why I like the 757's. It may be easier for the Airbus a/c to be painted though.

Cute looking plane. Well branded! But ONE BIG MISSTAKE they made. It would have been soo much nicer to paint the wings in red. It's a bird! I know their logo is a bird head but they've could taken advantage to use the wings, now it's wingless bird. Pitty, pitty, pitty!!

"Hey US Airways, my wings are red with a bit black. Why did you give me white wings?"

I personaly think it looks terrible the back taill need more color and like OwlEye said "the wings need color" i think the engines should go along with it!
when i lived in arizona i was at the airport and i saw the 757 cardnals plane, much better!

Looks like a TNTcargo / Toronto Raptors A320 hybrid.

Except that, both of those looked much better, especially the Raptors themed plane which was stunning!

That Cardinal looks retarded. Poor bird..

I give this one a thumbs down. The front of the aircraft looks OK, but the back has too much white paint.

The Philadelphia Eagles' aircraft definitely looks better!

Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 12):

I think that's the exact reason - 319s (AFAIK) are currently only to be used domestically or at least to places that have a clue what football is (or have a clue where Phoenix is).

I think sending a theme plane overseas really cheapens the look of the airline. Now that 757 is available... except I doubt it has ETOPS cert. It can at least go to the Carribbean.

As I said in the other thread, I was hoping for a scheme identical to the Eagles layout, expect with Cardinals logos/colours. I don't get why they'd try to switch it up. Uniformity is kind of a good thing.

Would you please post your new and improved livery for the Cardinals plane? Perhaps it will give us all a more collective opinion on which one is better.
