I saw this and I thought it was pretty cool. Apparently JetBlue has teamed up with TNT to create a 5 acre "billboard" on the ground. The "billboard" is promoting JetBlue and TNT's new drama, "Dallas". All JetBlue flights coming and going from DFW will pass by the "billboard" so they will get to enjoy this awesome piece of art.

I just thought it was a cool story, thought I would share.

Do you guys know of any other airlines that have tried this. I know I have a picture of Swissair, they did something similar, but are there other airlines that have tried something like this?

Now that's something you don't see every day! Kudos to TNT, B6, and DFW! Hopefully it'll gain each party/city more popularity. Not that Dallas itself needs it, but I'm guessing the new show could use a boost. History hasn't been too kind to remade television series lately (Melrose Place, Beverly Hills 90210, Charlie's Angels, etc...)


Fierce, Fabulous, and Flawless ;)

Quoting CapEd388 (Thread starter):

That's a large exaggeration on their part. Approaches to 17C, which the majority of B6 flights take, will see it, but I doubt anyone will catch a glimpse on a north-flow departure, should there be any of those in the summer. I'd say 50% of flights at best. I wonder if they expect to get more publicity from media outlets or pax who actually see it from the air. After all, it's only left side window pax arriving in daylight on 17C for two months who will see it (if they're looking).

Still cool though. There's also a huge warehouse with a big Cowboy's star painted on top that can be seen on southbound approach to 18R I believe. I love the idea of art only visible to those who fly (and make a point of getting a window seat).



I didn't get a 'Harumph' outta that guy!

Yeah that did come into my mind, that they might be exaggerating a bit, but Im not all that familiar with B6s operations at DFW.

All in all its pretty cool, I like when they do these types of big promotional stunts.
