the Ruhr metropolitan area in Western Germany has been named European Capital of Culture 2010. As a promotive measure, Air Berlin will put special stickers on 54 of its aircraft, with 53 of those also carrying the name of a city in the Ruhr area.
This was announced in 17 December, how many of these "flying embassadors" are already around? Any pics?
edit: Here comes an image of the first Ruhr 2010 aircraft. Disappointingly small sticker, if you ask me:
By the way, is there any reason why AB did this, and not LH? During the 2006 Football World Cup, LH featured the "soccer nose".

I think it's a great idea. I frequently visit the Ruhr area (mostly Essen and Bottrop, though I absolutely love Dusseldorf) and definitely plan to go this year for the 2010 Cultural events.
I'm guessing that the fact that they bought DUS-based LTU might have something to do with it. Either that or they outbid LH to become the "official" airline of the event.
