Raising the Bar on Boeing
Giving new meaning to the phrase "cabin pressure," Southwest Airlines recently debuted a new paint job on one of its Boeing 737s. Covered head to toe in model Bar Refaeli, the plane certainly stands out from the pack. Not sure about the reason for this, but perhaps Southwest figured that a partnership with Sports Illustrated would result in more flights booked. Well, why else?
Shockingly, not everyone is a fan of the plane. As TMZ reports, Southwest's customer blog has received a barrage of commentary. It turns out that some people don't want to fly in an aircraft with a semi-naked girl on it. Hang on, let me rephrase that: Some people don't want to fly in a plane with a semi-naked girl PAINTED on it. A few even went so far as to call it "a flying porn ad." Prudes!
Our favorite comment came from a gal called Lauren who wondered, "What will it look like after its first encounter with a flock of birds?"
We hope Southwest never has to find out.
What do you think of Southwest's decision to paint a supermodel on its plane?
