I’ve written a few times of airlines like Southwest having specialty fleets painted to commemorate a variety of things.

Southwest introduced us to Missouri One earlier this year. Here was a look at the airline’s specialty planes fleet back in 2013, some of which no longer exist.

JetBlue showed off a plane called Blue Bravest to support the FDNY Foundation in 2013.

There are many other airlines with specially painted planes and today Boeing brought back a very cool plane. Continue reading There’s A Boeing Seattle Seahawks Freight Plane

United’s MileagePlus Air Game Challenge with the NY Giants

I’ve heard stories of those fortunate enough to sit upfront on flights, trading their seats with members of the military but this story seems to be messed up in so many ways…

While on the way to work Wednesday morning I was listening to sports radio in my car when I heard bits of a story about a football player, DeAngelo Williams doing something incredibly nice. I only caught some of the story but from what I took from it, the player surprised a retired marine by trading him his business class seat, sitting (in the Marine’s seat) in coach.
