Default US Airways planning Steelers-themed airplane

US Airways planning Steelers-themed airplane
By The Associated Press
Thursday, February 1, 2007


US Airways is taking its support of the Pittsburgh Steelers to new heights.

The airline is partnering with the football team on a Steelers-themed jet. The aircraft, to be used on commercial flights, will be painted with the team's logo and black-and-gold colors later this year.

As part of the partnership, US Airways will sponsor some signs at Heinz Field as well as some tailgate parties before games.

US Airways, which used to use Pittsburgh International Airport as a hub, has been based in Tempe, Ariz., since merging with America West in 2005.

US Airways has similar promotional partnerships and NFL-themed planes with the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals, both teams in major US Airways markets.

A Carolina Panthers plane is also in the works. The airline has a hub in Charlotte, N.C.

Sweet that would be cool flying to somewhere on a Steeler Jet. On the other hand I could see myself refusing to fly on the Eagle craft. If the plane is anything like the team the words crash and burn take on a wholedifferent meaning.
