Obviously, several 717s have been painted for thee sports teams of FL's hubs/focus cities, and my question is are there any more planned 717s? Maybe for MKE (duh..  ), BOS, TPA? Also is FL planning to keep these around "forever"?

The special 717s are painted for teams where AirTran is the "official airline" of the team. I'm not sure what other teams are sponsored that haven't been painted onto an aircraft yet, but these would be the teams/cities to look for.

I do believe that more themed planes are planned, but I'm not quite sure of what could possibly be on the list.........I would imagine that in due time, that a Brewers plane will be made, but again not quite sure on who and time

I wouldn't be surprised to see a Marquette University plane at some point in the future, they are the official airline of Marquette University, and the presenting sponsor of Marquette Basketball.

Yeah, a Brewers plane or MU plane would be sweet. Anybody know if they are planning on keeping these around for awhile?

Air Tran has the Ravens, Falcons and Colts plane for NFL and they just debuted the Orlando Magic plane for the NBA.

What else is coming on board? Anything else from NFL or NBA, or maybe NHL? I would love to see a Detroit Redwings plane but FL doesn't have that big of an operation at DTW.

Tampa is somewhat of a focus city- Will we see a Bucs or Lightning plane?

- I wonder how much the Devoss family forked out for that paint? I would love to see the plane.

- Slightly off topic, don't the team still fly on their own DC-9?

Do the Boston Bruins still have an AirTran logo as one of the four sponsor logos surrounding center ice? That could be one to keep an eye out for.

I'd love a Columbus Blue Jackets jet, but like Detroit, there's no way that would happen. (OT, I was hoping Skybus would last long enough to roll one out.)
