That said, the NBA and Southwest Airlines were unable to come to a mutually beneficial agreement to extend our partnership.
With this decision, we have to repaint Slam Dunk One. It will soon be getting a new paint job
I actually had the opportunity to ride Slam Dunk One a few years ago on a short PVD-PHL flight. In addition to the special scheme (with its unique orange bubbles for the basketball), team logo decals of all the NBA teams were applied on the overhead bin doors (these will probably have to be scraped off as well).
Get your photos of this plane in this scheme while you can.
When I first saw Slam Dunk One back in 2005, I had the same feeling, that this would be a "one time only" type of deal. Although I will miss Slam Dunk One ( Still morning the loss of SI One ) This is Southwest Airlines, its only a matter of time before we introduce something new and captivating
