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

What's interesting is that US has (or at one time had) a hub at BWI, PHL, PHX, and PIT.

After this past weekend, I really wish US Airways had a Titans logojet... maybe it would have helped... :P

So, out of my remaining options... Go Cards.

It would be cool if US would strike a deal with the NFL to do every team, though.

Does anyone know why US doesn't do hockey, baseball and basketball logojets?

I'd love to see a:
Flyers, Penguins, Coyotes and Hurricanes jet. A Diamondbacks, Pirates, and Phillies jet. 76ers, Suns, Bobcats (lol maybe not them... :X) jet.

Total potential there.

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.

I don't believe that US serves every city that has an NFL team; example: US does NOT serve Green Bay.

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.

America West used to have a Diamondbacks 757. It may be the single ugliest livery I've ever seen. And I like the Dbacks!

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.

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!

You're about 5 years off from that.

Even though their biggest regional affiliate, ZW, is based in nearby Appleton. Only time ZW metal gets to ATW anymore is on a diversion.

My point exactly.

You know what is funny, besides the unveiling of the Panthers livery, I have never seen it in CLT.

In fact, the only time I did see it was last weekend in DCA.

But I have ridden on the Steelers livery CLT-DCA.

CLT doesn't get enough 319s to spread the special planes around.

Southwest has been the official airlines of the Suns since 2003.

No joke.

How sad is that?
