Boeing timeline graphic mistakingly promotes Airbus 321

Post by Turbofan » Sat Feb 25, 2017 9:43 pm

Inventory Locator Service (ILS), which is apparently a Boeing partner, somehow let a timeline graphic through the cracks with a generic Airbus 321 right at the very top in plain sight. What's even more embarassing for the people in charge is that "Boeing 737" has been Photoshopped on the 321's fuselage! LOL

I'm sure Airbus executives weren't amused.

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

The 737 is easily distinguishable compared to ALL other large commercial airliners. The gear, the wings, the everything.

How one can choose to photoshop Boeing 737 onto a stock image of an Airbus 321 is mind boggling - did you think no one would notice?
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!
