The inflight movie is "Batman", and the airline agreed to make the engine look like the Batmobile exhaust in exchange for getting the movie for free.

I read the other thread about if the picture is a fake or not.
The interesting thing is if this picture is not a fake is this something that
the airlines think is normal or will there be an investigation into this event?
