    At least they're copying AA's initiative for a change.

    That plane was painted when Larry Kelner was CEO of CO.

    It was painted that way in celebration of CO's 75th anniversary back in 2009. A little bit of trivia. It was the first aircraft CO took delivery that did not have the Sky Team logo on it.

    Many of us hope that we keep this paint job for many more years.

    Keep smiling guys, cuz I'm gonna give you a lot more than smiles in the next 5-7 years, and I think you'll like it.

    Also, this pic is dying for a Pinky and the Brain reference.
