Asiana World Cup Logojet?

Tue Mar 14, 2006 3:12 pm

I snapped this Asiana 744 at LAX yesterday - its not on the database yet and sorry I can't upload them here at the moment as I don't have photo processing facilities whilst I'm travelling:

I don't read Korean but I presume this is a special for the football/soccer world cup??? Anyone able to confirm please?

Andy

PS: Notice on the second image (24827) that the graphic goes over the cabin windows...

Andy,

Quite interesting and good to see. The windows back there wouldn't have a problem being covered up as the plane is a combi! Then again, maybe the containers would object to not being able to see out!
Nice!

I would imagine that they are trying to piggy back some publicity off the world cup but can not explicitly mention it by name as that would likely draw the ire of EK and FIFA. This is likley buried in the Legalese of their contract somewhere. This type of renegade advertising is very common.
