Euro Copying US LCCs Again

Tue Dec 30, 2003 3:16 pm

Guys:

A few years ago i made note that the Ryanair cartoon plane was almost an exact copy of our friend the Valujet Critter... I was happy to see Critter alive and well in the UK...

Now I see it again with Air Botnia... "BLUE 1" ... the blue engine cowling the tail with the checkerboard 1.. C'mon if this isnt jetBLUEish

Seems like similarities between jetBlue and Blue1, but the ValuJet plane is vastly different from the bloated Ryanair flying Manatee.
