Inspired by Letters Above Cockpit Windows? (by Btriple7 Jun 17 2006 in Tech Ops) , I have a similar question. I haven't been able to find any threads that've covered this before, so there it is.
I don't think I've ever seen a commercial aircraft with lettering, logos, or graphics on its forehead--why is that? When I put on my markerter's cap, it seems like that blank space would be *perfect* for even a small company logo or name. When you consider that just about every other surface of the a/c exterior contributes to the brand and the amount of time that the front is visible (especially when it's parked at the gate), it almost seems like a waste. But I'm sure there has to be a reason, so if anybody could explain it, I'm all ears...err--eyes...
If there happens to be any airline that has done or does this, please let me know of that, too; I'd love to find a pic in the database to get a gander. Thanks!
