Why thanks... guess I just haven't had any AS questions. Will just eke out MVP this year again, and next year we've got flights booked on (gasp) AA, UA and DL.

But I thought the snowflakes were so cute I just had to make a mention. Hope the positive feedback gets back to the designer(s).

I'll watch for them...flying out of LAX right after Christmas so they should still be up. I've heard a lot about that traffic so will allow plenty of time.

It's just a reminder of the number of snowflakes it takes to halt operations at SEA.

Yes. Northwest Airlines often created snow flake images out of aircrafts for their Christmas cards to their elites. Its is likely other airlines have done it even before this.

Nice idea. It took me awhile to realize the flakes were made from planes.

On the themed aircraft pic above ... it appears nobody thought of the effect that heat from the engines would have on the snowflakes. All the flakes have melted and dripped off onto the ramp

One if it's plane shaped. Ten if they're plain shaped.
