Plane Painting

$20,000,000 in a moment's decision.  Painting a plane is business decision.  Not the kind you'd think: does pink look pretty? No.  

Flying is a sensitive science.  Sure, painting a plane can make it look like a 70s disco, but it adds weight.  Think about a can of paint from Home Depot.  Think about the size of a plane; that's a lot of liquid.

In just one year, painting a plane can cost twenty MILLION dollars in fuel.  Packing a few extra olives onboard?  Each Olive can cost tens of thousands each year.  So if you like your airline, hit the gym before a flight.
