Battle Of The Americans- Round 4!

Sun Sep 03, 2006 7:00 pm

here are the results:

UNITED- 20
nwa-12

MAXJET- 20
spirit- 12

HAWAIIAN- 14
ALASKA- 13
fedex- 5

so the winners are United, Maxjet, and Hawaiian. Now I had been thinking about what to do with the category with 3 airlines, whether to let one go on or two. Well since it was so close I thought that they should both go through... so this will not be the final round... this will get it down to 2 airlines for the final round!!!
I will add one special livery to each airline... if I can find one that is still in operation

I'm leaving the special liveries up just in case some one else knows of different liveries... If there aren't any "special" liveries up for a certain airline that doesn't have one already posted feel free to post them... but if there is already one picture of a special livery don't post anymore pictures of that airlines different liveries!

let the VOTING Begin!!!

Quoting Alaskaqantas (Thread starter):
ALASKA AIRLINE vs. UNITED AIRLINES

Easy . . . Alaska all the way. United and their yet again redesigned, recolored, resized "U" is getting old.

Chester - well, he's timeless . . . Alaska wins hands down. Of course, I'm not at all biased . . .

Quoting Alaskaqantas (Thread starter):
HAWAIIAN AIR vs. MAXJET AIRWAYS

Ha, no question . . . who doesn't LOVE Pu'ulani! Hawaiian winds easily. Beauty aircraft, beauty livery . . .

 irked  wink  It's a great livery. Unique, one of a kind, timeless, like AA . . . see that Eskimo, and there's no question, it's AS . . .

I agree with ANCflyer here... its timeless like he said and if people see it they know AS... Although AS was thinking about changing it a while ago, they asked all of the MVP Golds what they thought and in the end were told to keep it. I hope that AS does a little something maybe spice up the body of the aircraft!

my votes:

  • AS... Hands down

  • hawaiian... very hard choice!

Alaska had lost in previous round. It shouldn't be included. But I understand Alaskaqantas problem in setting up a top 2 final round. So, it is going to be (and I am so sure this will become the final outcome):

United and Hawaii.

Who will be the Miss USA version of airline liveries? I can't wait to find out.  bouncy

I didn't expect AS to get this far, and I feel bad saying this, but I don't see them going beyond this round(you could always change that  Wink), so I didn't feel like it was wrong when I put AS into the poll. (which I did for a few reasons as stated above) Big grin

Anyways keep up the vites... one more week left!!

yeah thats true... the've had it for longer then 5 years right? By looking at pictures there are pictures of it back in 1995 with the eskimo, it may go back further too 1944 when the airline was named Alaska Airlines, it was origonaly called McGee Airways back in 1932. they were known for going out to remote villages and trading for furs. then on the way back picking up any charter passengers. then it changed to Alaska Star Airlines. then as I said in 1944 decided to call itself just Alaska Airlines, maybe thats when it started the eskimo livery.
I agree... but I don't think that would "fly" with the other people on this board  Wink (boy that suuuuure is a knee slapper... get it, fly haha)
