    Saw a Ryanair 737 in Boeing dreamliner livery at the Madrid Barajas airport and thought it was pretty weird... did a search and found pictures on another site along with a discussion of how its a promotional paint scheme to advertise Boeing... seems pretty weird to me.

    Here's the plane:

    No different than Alaska Air's Boeing livery.

  3. I really like RyanAir as a business. I avoid being a customer :) I prefer EasyJet when it comes to cheap in Europe

    is this done for advertising purposes?

    if so, who is their target audience? it won't be the general public right, what do they care Boeing or Airbus?

    must be geared towards airline insiders...

    Why does Boeing have those "feel good" ads on TV? They must think there is some value in keeping their name in the public eye. Whether it works or not I have no idea, but the whole mass media advertising thing is a mystery to me.

    Or maybe they just want to fool someone into thinking that the 787s are actually flying :)

    They should sponsor United, some of the last few 737s I flew with them were in a really sorry state... paint peeling off, scuffed, etc.

    Oh wait, Continental will paint them, great!
