I know that Emirates has their name on the bottom of their jets but was wondering what other airlines do the same thing?

Thanks in advance.

The airlines all seem to have the name oriented as "correct-side-up" when the aircraft nose points left.
Is there a rationale or historical basis for this convention that they all appear to have adopted?

Jetstar

Didn't know Jetstar had their logo underneath.

Would be cool to start and see more airlines having their name under the aircraft..looks good on the Emirates aircraft when they come across.

Anyone know of any airlines planning on writing the airline name under the aircraft? Cheers  Smile

Varig never operated the Viscount. Another defunct Brazilian carrier, VASP, was a Viscount operator.

I know Wantas has had certain messages on some of their aircrafts bellies. But have they added "Qantas" to their bellies?

Not sure if this counts because it's technically the website of the airline, but Air Iceland does it:

Quite effective too, as a lot of takeoffs and landings at RKV go low right over the city center. On the other hand, it's not like there's another choice of airline for domestic flights...

I don't know if that's the case but I'd guess that their names can best be read from left to right and front to back.  wink

I think you have it. With the first letter of the name at the front of the aircraft, the name is revealed in correct order as the aircraft passes you (if you read one letter at a time). Makes sense to me. Thanks!

I dont understand this post (serious, am not being smart). What is meant by Wantas - or am I a bit "slow" today??

Thank you for sharing that, that is a brilliant idea. Another would be "come fly with me".



remember the t shirt "I own an airline"on the front - "qantas" on the back

I am giving Mirrodie the benefit of the doubt and assume that the W was just a slipped keystroke away from the Q.

Having said that I don't recall any Qantas A/C with messages on their bellies.

Cheers

You are right, and I was double wrong  Smile It was the VASP Saab Scandia who first had the belly titles.
