Looks really ugly doesn't it? I would have thought they could have done something a bit better looking and more eye catching.


Come with me, there's a place I want you to see, where the leaves are dark, I've got a hiding place in central park.

An airline that orders 90 x A380s and dares to fly around with such an ugly sticker rather than to paint a complete A380 in AC Milan colours is not worth to call itself a sponsor or world airline. This is a poor, very poor tasteless promotion scheme.

The titles do look rather unappealing. But I guess it depends on how long they plan to keep that little shirt on the plane, and how quickly they want it off when the promotion is done. Also, it does not make sense spending a whole lot of money on a paint job that is going to diminish the actual flying brand on their flagship aircraft (With the overall hype around an A380 still well above average, I am sure Emirates wants the world to know that the A380 belongs to them as opposed to another brand dominating the fuselage).



I've flown on 9V-SPK.

I understand but disagree: don't forget how Gulfair and Etihad promoted F1, well that were totally different promotion approaches. The Emirates AC Milan flying ad might be temporary but it is a disgrace for Emirates aswell as AC Milan to promote in such a lousy way. Btw Emirates has the money, this AC Milan promo sticker is inexpensive yes but also very cheap.

I have to wonder if the way Etihad and Gulf Air promoted the F1 had anything to do with the fact that they were promoting events in their home country as opposed to Emirates sponsoring an Italian football club?

It actually looks great there in that photo but that is to do with the way the photo is framed and the fact that there are AC milan players in jerseys coming off anyway. I wonder if they were just going for something that looks good as you are getting onto the aircraft rather than looking good as a whole?? Unlikely, but you never know.

I was one of the crew that brought the aircraft into Milan. It was a very pleasant flight, people were excited and lots of media on board. if you go to youtube and search for "Emirates A380 in Milan", a passenger have filmed the landing from inside the aircraft, you could hear me doign the arrival Arabic PA.

Now that looks bad.

People were bagging the TK Man U and Barcelona stickers, but they looked top class compared to this.

I think the A380 is an aircraft that is difficult to paint right, nobody has really got an interesting scheme on it, and this definitely won't be remembered. I feel you have to get rid of the white and paint it entirely to succeed.
