    For a cool $14 million, you can advertise for a year on the exterior of every Spirit Airlines jet.

    If that's too steep, consider plunking down $196,000 for three months of ads on the overhead bins in Spirit's planes, $119,000 for ads on the tray tables or $18,500 for ads on air-sickness bags.

    Spirit, along with Europe's leading cut-rate airline Ryanair, are unashamed industry leaders at generating ancillary revenue by seemingly renting every inch of in-flight display space to advertisers.

    But they're just leading the way. A growing number of U.S. airlines -- perhaps emboldened by billions of dollars of extra revenue collected annually for bag fees -- are reaching out to advertisers, too.

    Ads are appearing not only on overhead bins, seat backs and tray tables but on flight attendants' aprons, snack boxes and napkins.

    And in announcements by flight crews and even in safety videos.

    Yeah to paraphrase Jon Stewart on the daily show...advertising on the side of those planes gets you much higher ratings from the all important demographic of 18-25 year old male geese.

    Quite an amusing segment they did actually...a whole other parody of in flight potential ads...I personally thought the "Oxygen Network" logo on the oxygen masks was pretty funny too.

    Delta is even smarter. Every Economy Meal comes complete with an advertisement for an $18.50 barf bag.
