Somebody paid somebody a lot of money but it will get them some free media coverage and that is the game now.

You won't be seeing the 737 MAX in that livery anytime soon with all the software problems.

True, I assume that's why the model displayed is a 737-800.

I like it very striking.

The force is strong in that one :(

RevMan2 15th Apr 2019 17:29

I understand they start service at the beginning of next month - May the fourth be with you....

S.o.S. 16th Apr 2019 22:27

Well, next month will be the FIFTH month, so that doesn't work. Really, folks, we need some better quotes and jokes here. Your lack of originality disturbs me … := ;)

Yeah, but the fourth of May * does* exist and it’s commonly known as Star Wars Day
PS there's the classic non-apocryphal tale of George Lucas’ interview on German TV which he concludes by turning to the camera and saying “May the force be with you”, converted by the simultaneous translator to “Ich werde am 4. Mai bei Ihnen sein” - (“I”ll be with you on 4 May”)
True stories of this quality are rare and should be treasured...

Hmmm. Personally, I think Alec Guinness made that line famous - his likeness should be on on the aircraft.
Then again, talk like a pirate day is Sept 19th. Wonder what airline could pick up the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' motif?
Heck, we have Shamu flying all over he US and Norwegian has Sonja Henie on the tail of one AC. Why stop now?

Er, that’s right, but George Lucas - as director of Star Wars - told him to say it...

Star Wars Day is thing??? I am too young to remember such things from the 1970s.

RevMan2 17th Apr 2019 12:21


Star Wars Day is a thing???
It is.You really have to get out more..

Then you'll be blithely unaware of March 14 too.
Pi(e) Day, but only really for our colonial cousins (3.14)

The curse of the chronologically ungifted...

PAXboy 17th Apr 2019 13:55

A friend of mine told me about 'Towel Day' to do with Hitchikers Guide but I don't know when it is.

S.o.S. All I can offer is: These are not the TAILS you are looking for... :cool:

Sailing close to the wind, PAXboy...

It is. You really have to get out more..
You miserable little pax, how dare you! I cannot get out more as I have to be watching the cabin all day AND all night. Take 500 lines, "I must respect the Moderator" and have it ready before the end of this sector.

PAXboy
After we land, you will clean the cabin from front to back, using your toothbrush (ah those fabulous days in the Army) and then you serve a three course meal for all the moderators,who are relaxing in First Class. Which is where I'm going now, but the CCTV is ON.
