There have been multiple efforts to educate passengers about flying. ICAO has hosted conferences
about the fears of flying and Virgin Atlantic has an iPhone app
to explain different phases of a flight.
But I've never seen quite an effort as South African LCC Kulula has carried out. Readers of the Airline Business blog may remember Kulula's quirky telephone system
, and that quirkiness isn't lost on these photos of their specially painted (err, decaled) 'Flying 101' 737.
Stickers explain parts of the aircraft, like engine and seats, but also mention "the big cheese" for the captain's seat and explain the lavatory as "loo (or mile-high club initiation chamber)". Click on the photos for a larger view.
(These photos have been making the rounds on e-mail chains, so I suspect these images are from the airline, but if you have copyright info please let me know.)5 Feb Update:
These photos are from Flickr user shanair
(Malcolm Nason). At the time I posted them I did not have any copyright info, photographer info, or know the photos originated from Flickr. Apologies and great photos Malcolm!7 Feb Update:
