US Airways must be feeling pretty proud of itself, as three of the four teams left competeing for the Superbowl have special schemes adorning their aircraft, Arizona Cardinals, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Philadelphia Eagles, with the fourth team aircraft, Carolina Panthers, being eliminated at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals

Quoting Whappeh (Reply 4): Does anyone know why US doesn't do hockey, baseball and basketball logojets?
Probably because they aren't "The Official Airline" for those respective teams. The 'official' airline for all the other major sports teams in Philly (Phillies, 76ers & Flyers) is WN.
Quoting Antoniemey (Reply 2): It would be cool if US would strike a deal with the NFL to do every team, though.
I don't believe that US serves every city that has an NFL team; example: US does NOT serve Green Bay.
Quoting Vctony (Reply 1): What's interesting is that US has (or at one time had) a hub at BWI, PHL, PHX, and PIT.
Unfortunately, the BWI hub (originally a PI hub) was dismantled way before the HP/US merger. The only reason why a Steelers plane came into being was because the PIT hub dismantling was still relatively recent with respect to the merger.

But the Diamondbacks changed colors from teal and purple to "Sedona Red" and HP bought US. US is still the official airline of the Dbacks, so I don't know why they haven't put one of their 319s in Diamondbacks colors yet.

Quoting Chumley (Reply 7): They also had a couple of variations of Suns liveries prior to the merger. They are also still the official airline of the Suns, so I wonder why a Suns logojet hasn't happened yet either. They do play their games in "US Airways Center" after all!
Southwest has been the official airlines of the Suns since 2003.
How sad is that?
