Talk about your airborne advertising

121570891_15512422c2.jpgOkay. We still like AirTran. They have resisted a few ugly things that clearly have tempted them, like charging for the first checked bag or advertising inside the airplane. The outside of the airplanes have lots of marketing stuff on them, but they’re all AirTran ads, like the image of racecar driver Danica Patrick that they slapped on the side of a 717. But now the carrier, which has almost all of its operations at Atlanta, has begun advertising in the skies over the city of Peachtrees.

(The picture above, from Flickr, is from an aerial effort a few years back Down Under.)


Literally. It hired a pilot and plane to sky write ads in the skies over Atlanta’s Georgia Dome and downtown and its big shopping area, the Galleria, with catchy slogans like FLY AIRTRAN or AIRTRAN SALE. We like this; we haven’t seen this sort of cleverness since Phil’s Burgers down at the beach.

    that’s way cool. Are there any regulations about that. Has anyone else tried it?

    I love the way you write and also the theme on your blog. Did you code this yourself or was it done by a professional? I’m very very impressed.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
