You mean like Air France or BA? I really like the US logo. Does Bank of America's logo bother you too?

Section 8i of the US Flag Code states: "The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown." So using the real flag as a logo probably isn't a good idea.

Actually I do like both of those airlines' livery! I have to rate US Air's at the bottom 3 or 4 in the world (and I've traveled all over the globe) I just think it looked absolutely horrible and the latest change improves it, but please get rid of that Bart Simpson like crap on the tail.

BofA looks somewhat like a real flying flag, at least it incorporates the colors and doesn't look like a livery for a hearse lease company.
