Everyone knows that the news media never gets airline stories right. But don't you think a airline would know what type of equipment they operate???

Ah yeah, that pic of the EMB-145 somehow dosen't fit unless it is a OH ramp crew pushing it back somewhere, then it would make sense.

Comair does the ground work for Chautauqua in CVG as well as many other stations.

I'm sure that picture is going to scare away some customers judging from how inaccurate it is. It is such a big difference and all.

I'm guessing the photograph is a representation of a OH operated station serving other DCI carriers. The photo would still be accurate in that case.

Yep, I noticed it right away as well...

While it's certainly humorous for us, the general public has no idea of the difference between the CRJ and the ERJ.

Quoting BR715-A1-30 (Reply 2):
Comair does the ground work for Chautauqua in CVG as well as many other stations.

In ROA, for instance, Comair does the ground handling for ASA (ATL) and Chautauqua (CVG, formerly served by Comair, then Freedom), even though Comair isn't in ROA anymore.

So I don't see this picture as being THAT big of a deal... I mean, the ERJ doesn't have Comair painted on it, and it is technically showing the ground crew pushing the ERJ

Yeah, the CRJ vs. ERJ thing isn't all that noticable.

What did catch my eye, however, was this:

Is OH planning on doing some regional work for OS or something?  silly

Well, Not very well... I am always prepared for questions relating to the job, but then they always ask me questions about what kind of car I drive, and why I would choose efficiency over size... I froze on that, thereby eliminating me.

If the airline doesn't care, why should you or I?

Some of you need to get a life...that doesn't completely involve going to every airline website out there looking for mistakes.

And, in case your wondering if I am serious, yes I am.

Well, I would not suspect a conspiracy here. My guess is that the PR people working for airlines are the same uncreative art school dropouts, who think that it's innovative to have some variation of the topic "arrow" as an airline logo. Because an arrow is fast and dynamic... yawn. And since we in the west read from left to right, that's where the arrow is supposed to go.

Moreover, red is a salient color. That leaves really not so much room for variation.

I have heard other airlines are also using the red arrow from left to right approach (although it is cropped in this case).

You said it. I thought some of the photoshopped ideas posted on airliners were way better than the yawn that Delta came up with. But at least its just a photo on a web page and not an entire livery...

For the rest of the world outside of the group on here these are the types of airplanes:

An F-16 aka an F-15 (any military aircraft) F-14 F-15 F-16 F/A 18 F-22 all fit this
A Cessna aka a Piper Cub any single or twin engine GA aircraft regardless of make
A Lear Jet.... any general aviation jet aircraft from an Eclipse to a Global Express
A prop plane... ATR 42 ATR 72 DASH 8 Beech 1900 you get the picture
A 7 X 7 replace the X with any number from 2 to 6 (leaving out 717 and tripple 7) any airliner from an ERJ to a 777
A 747 any widebody airliner

People just don't care... its a plane it has wings... i remember someone got all up in arms on here because an airline had a photo of an airport the airline didnt fly too... who cares... its an airport artistically it fit the bill.. That ERJ looked nice on the comair page... it fit.. if a nice shiney DC-9 fit their ad, they would prob. stick a dc-9 there
