I love the way airlines paint planes–and how they dress up the inside. Here are a couple of shots I like. One reader, T.S., took a couple of shots of Era Aviation’s refurbished Dash 8. Note the red leather seats!
And check out the new exterior paint job here:Alaska Airlines’ representatives Steve Carlisle (left), Scott Habberstadt (center) and Amanda Tobin Bielawski (right) help me ham in up inside a retrofitted 737-400 combi aircraft (below). Again–nice leather seats and big fat overhead bins. B-i-g improvement over the old 737-200 planes. These new planes feature a fixed bulkhead mid-cabin with cargo in front and about 77 passenger seats in the rear.As part of the airline’s 75th birthday party, Alaska Airlines painted one of their 737s in “retro” colors. Cool.
Below is the interior of Alaska’s retro “Starliner” 737-800. There’s a timeline of the airline on the outside of the storage bin. But here’s what I like: the folding headrests. Look closely: you can fold the edges of the headrests up to sort of cup your head. Great anti-drool mechanism. Your neighbor in the center seat will appreciate it. HA.
