How many companies use aircraft as a place for marketing? The only I can think of is:

EVERY commerical aircraft is a flying ad if you ask me. But so far as ads for something other than the airline flying the bird, the first thing that comes to my mind is the WN Shamu plane for Sea World. I think it's gone now, but I know I flew on it STL-CLE several years ago.

It's tacky, disgusting and yet another reminder that airplanes are nothing but flying busses. I don't fly airlines that have adverts on their planes.

I forget what they're called.. like "adjets" or something like that.

I know there was a Colorado-based airline that had ads on all of it's planes.

What about some planes in the "STAR ALLIANCE" livery?! Would those be conciderd ads?! It seems that ever airline/member of the Star Alliance has at least one of their planes in the star alliance colors/livery.

You should get yourself your own plane and fly only that one. Every commercial airliner is at least advertising its own brand, alliance, engine manufacturer...etc..

So let me get this straight...let's say you were flying Air New Zealand somewhere and you saw that your aircraft for that particular flight was the Lord of the Rings jet they had. You would cancel your tickets on that flight and pay a walk-up fare for another flight just to be free of an advertisement? Riiiiight.

Personally I think they can be overdone (case in point the ANA Pokemon livery, which would probably give someone a seizure when viewed close up), but I wouldn't go out of my way (and possibly be out a good bit of cash) to do something ridiculous like StarCruiser and avoid flying on one entirely.

Especially for the a/c manufacturer if the airline puts a sticker with the manufacturer's name and the a/c model on it. Even more so if the airline has its web address or reservations number on the a/c. When you think about it, Hooters Air is a flying billboard for the Hooters resturant chain as well.

Ads on a/c are going to increase as airlines look for additional sources of income. Ads on winglets are just beginning to appear, and airlines have put ads on the tray tables, inside of the overhead bins, on the outside of the overhead bins, and even on the cups and napkins.

If someone is so petty or stuck up that they refuse to fly on an a/c that is a flying billboard, then perhaps they should just charter a private jet. That has to be one of the most absurd comments I've ever seen in my nearly 4 years on this site.

Good for you. The rest of us care more about safety and service than the external paint job, which btw you can't see while you're flying.

And here's another one:

Shamu has not gone anywhere. I think they may have 3, one for each of 3 Sea World's (CA, TX, FL).
