Ridiculous idea, it would only be visible at best to maybe 1/6 to 1/8 of a typical large plane,(eg those on the correct side in the window seats) and then only if they happened to be looking out in that direction for those particular few seconds... and if it wasn't too cloudy, dark, rainy etc...maybe 20 people on a jumbo? why not just rent billboard space in the airport you morons, where every single passenger sees it, or in the inflight mag?

Stupidity on a stick with gold knobs on to anyone wasting their companies ad budget like on this.

Lilyana, flight attendants already push products on us for commission. Almost every airline now has a duty-free catalog for onboard sale. Recently, the US Airways flight attendants have been making scripted inflight announcements pushing their Visa card, which they are undoubtedly also being 'compensated' for.
