In February 2000 I ended up on a Crossair charter to LPA on the infamous "MacPlane" - I still think this was my most embarrasing ride on a plane ever - they even served food influenced by McDonald's (Chicken Nuggets!) .
Anyway, as long as McD pays a lot of money to make the Euro a success, why not? But using children as a motive?
Mac Food is certainly not a good choice for children, I can't help it, but the ferry tale "Der Rattenfaenger von Hameln" comes to my mind...
...and also: what the heck does McD have to to with soccer? Is it easier to score after some vitalizing burgers?
Last, but not least; watch out, Austrian: the airlines once advertising McD have either disappeared or are about to be drastically restructered...
Goals instead of BigMacs!

Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

Quoting SandroZRH (Thread starter): Austrian Airlines painted Airbus A321 OE-LBC in special McDonalds colors to promote the UEFA Euro2008 players escort (Kids who escort the players onto the field before the games).

Quoting SandroZRH (Reply 9): I don't see the logic here, it's still a flying billboard and a specialy livery. The Park Inn plane looks neat aswell, and it's not an advertisement for a city.
Well I can understand that an airline is advertising a city an advertisment for T-Mobile, McDonalds etc just looks cheap on an aircraft. Maybe I am old fashioned in that regards but an airliner is not a city bus.
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Quoting NA (Reply 11): Who expects anything tasteful or even classy from them?
Actually, they are redesigning their stores and marketing materials and it is actually tasteful for the most part. I drove by a McDonalds yesterday that had been refurbished and I was surprised at how nice the building looked. Also the new McDonalds with the "McCafe" I stopped at in Perth australia was very classy, with a coffee bar area and LCD tvs with news and business channels on...
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
I have got a linguistic question for our German and Austrian members:
The text in German is spelled "Die McDonald's fussball eskorte".
Should it not be "Die McDonald's Fussball Eskorte"? or is it so that in Austrian German or modern German the nouns are not to start with a capital letter any more?
Kind of a capital question

I almost choked on a chicken nugget from McD from laughing at this thread! I do remember wanting to have ridden on those old McD planes when I was a kid. To be young and naive enjoying McD chicken nuggets on the McD plane.
