I just saw one of these, and since I didn't read about this promo, it freaked me out seeing a 'shark'shaped icon for a Southwest flight on Flightaware-into KOAK!
Southwest is so cool!
I saw one of the sharks on the screen last night, for a flight out of Pittsburgh. Took me a minute to figure out what was going on, then I realized that it was one of their shark planes. Very cool!
An airline giving PGH some love? Wow. #notbitteraboutUSAirskippingpittsburgh
Southwest has always had some of the more interesting liveries in the US. That they paired up with the Discovery Channel for Shark Week is not that surprising and that FA is tracking those specially named planes with a special marker is cool. Thumbs up to FA.
