Agreed... songs livery is quite eye-catching, and its fresh and original. And after sitting on one of thier planes for 3 hours, I can tell you the entire operation is well run and smooth!
song may not have the most pleasing to the eye livery, but it certainly catches your attention! perhaps its that in todays market, you need to really stand out to be recognized. thats why, maybe, this ted bought an entire store-load of diners a piece of cheesecake from the cheesecake factory, yet nobody knew who ted was!
competition is stiff these days.. and the way i see it, its survivial of the fittest. and to be the fittest, you need to attract as much attention as you can...
maybe the Ted and song liveries wont go down on your list of favorites, but surely when you see the big green 757 take off, the whole "concept" of song will pop into your head... no matter how much you hate it.
