Southwest Airlines now flies Penguin One, a brand new Boeing 737-700 festuned with pictures of the Antarctic waddlers. The reason is that SW ahs been in cahoots with SeaWorld Florida for the past quarter-century, where penguins are one of the main attractions.

Regular passengers are already familiar with SW aircraft painted with images of other famed SeaWorld critters, Shamu One and Shamu Two. SW and other airlines continue to get away from the unillustrated aircraft paint jobs with pictures of eskimos, state emblems and other artwork. Cruise lines are following the trend by having huge murals on the bows of their ships designed by famed artists.
