Inspired by Letters Above Cockpit Windows? (by Btriple7 Jun 17 2006 in Tech Ops) , I have a similar question. I haven't been able to find any threads that've covered this before, so there it is.

I don't think I've ever seen a commercial aircraft with lettering, logos, or graphics on its forehead--why is that? When I put on my markerter's cap, it seems like that blank space would be *perfect* for even a small company logo or name. When you consider that just about every other surface of the a/c exterior contributes to the brand and the amount of time that the front is visible (especially when it's parked at the gate), it almost seems like a waste. But I'm sure there has to be a reason, so if anybody could explain it, I'm all ears...err--eyes...

If there happens to be any airline that has done or does this, please let me know of that, too; I'd love to find a pic in the database to get a gander. Thanks!

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Come to think of it, you have a point. Seems logical to use that space to put the airline name, logo, something. About the only example I can think of where the nose was used for advertising would be the PSA "smile" or something along those lines.  Smile In the "old days", UA used to have their "shield" logo below/behind the cockpit windows on the side, but I don't think that counts towards what you're saying.


Don't blame me, I don't work here...
