This isn't going to be a wham bamg just drag it out on the tarmac deal. Its going to be a whole marketing presentation. This reminds me of the first steps of the "Intel Inside" campagin. That was one of the most successful marketing campagins ever BTW. This is about getting the end user to recoginize Boeing=planes I want to fly on; and thus pressure their fav airline to buy them.
Always wonderers if this "last and final boarding call" is in fact THE last and final boarding call.
