Sounds great, I wonder if the Phoenix Suns will be one of the aircraft ????, I saw it in July and it looked in a sad way !!

As an avid NHL fan, I can't wait to see those schemes. Now, if only the teams were as good as the planes would probably look....
Also, did anybody see that news article about AWA allowing people to trade in FF miles for the chance to ride the Zamboni at a Coyotes game?

It would be nice if they got an affiliation with a Las Vegas casino and painted a theme plane with a showgirl on the tail much like WestPac did on a 737. Just looking at that busty girl on the tail of that plane took the chill out of my bones when I used to work on the ramp in winter!

Hey the Coyotes are pretty good... they have usually been in the 2 or 3 in the Pacific division.

Anyways, I can't wait to see more HP 757s in theme colors. But they are running out of sports teams to paint planes for and states.

That's great new, I'm sure the aircraft will look spectacular in these new special paint schemes. Too bad I won't be seeing them here in Columbus.

Cool. I always enjoyed seeing the HP theme-painted 757s when I worked at LAX. Will these new paint jobs be applied to 757s or Airbuses?

I personally think the theme planes should all be 757s... keep it consistent and it helps to tell which of the 13 57s you are on.

I actually wonder if some of the older 757 logo jets will be re-painted in these new colors (and thus no A320 logo jets). Why? Has anyone seen the Phoenix Suns 757 lately? Yikes!! She needs new paint in a BIG way...

Is America West still the official airline of the Suns? I know the Suns dumped them for Northwest a few years ago because the team wanted a personal A319 and Cactus said "no way". If not, then I'm willing to bet that the Phoenix Suns theme will be repainted with something else....

Gotta hammer it ASAP!

Hell if the Suns want their own plane than Calangelo can go out and buy one for them... that bastard. Anyways I think the SUNS colors are the ugliest of the themeplanes.

Actually now that you mention it, I remembered that this is what the Phoenix Suns now fly in:

I know they always finish 2 or 3 in the pacific division. That is my point. Every year they seem to get off to a phenomenal start, but then, when playoff time rolls around, they are normally in 5th or 6th. Don't get me started on how the Coyotes, and while they were the Jets, have never made it past the first round in the playoffs.
Hey, and look who always seems to be #1 in the Pacific Division: my home team, the Dallas Stars.
