Etihad Airways-you decide?

Do you think it is a PR disaster for Etihad to sponsor Man City?
Eleven muppets every Saturday running around with the brand name on their shirts??

Jeez,in my day, one sponsor would have been Walls and the other Hovis....
Or B.O.A.C. and the other Canadian Pacific Airlines.

Sounds like they will be "sponsoring" Emirates soon.

They can't be that bad, they've recently gone into codeshare with Flybe. Why didn't they sponsor Blackburn Rovers?

I believe Etihad when translated means 'united'. How ironic if that was the case.

Etihad must have the kiss of death about them.

Ferrari are also sponsored by them.

As of 2009 the airline has not made a profit since it was founded, but expects to break even in 2010. Growth has never fallen below 40% a year. In its first 4 years, it doubled in size every 6 months, and has every year since.
