Hey Deltoids... noticed some of your 767s in JFK last night have logo lights... new addition, or newer aircraft?

(Our crack management team at AA immediately decommissions the logo lights on any of our new aircraft so equipped. You know, money savings over safety... yeah.)

Our 767-300ER have them installed. Domestic 767-300's do not.

FWIW I can tell you that on a fleet of about 130 a/c the cost of those light bulbs is about 230K a year.

Not all ER's, just some. Mostly the ones we got from other airlines (Gulf Air).

Holy crapola! I knew something ACL didn't. Sweet jebus, what is the world coming to? :p

Yeah, I knew I was going to get bombed on that one. I was just making it easy.
Good one!

This place flushes 230k in minutes. What is the loss of advertising and aircraft visibility by not having them? They should be on all aircraft, switched on for ground ops and off during the climb check.

That number is probably different for 767's as opposed to RJ's.

Yeah, I noticed that too.... that ALL RJs have logo lights, and they all use them, whereas very few mainline aircraft do. So I gotta "ax" you... what difference does it make, a bulb is a bulb right?

True, weird story: when XJT was in contract negotiations a few years ago the pilots were doing a "no logo lights" campaign. A couple of years later when the TA was signed the VP of Flight Ops thanked the Union for saving the company hundreds of thousands of dollars on light bulbs. :laugh:

ASA had all of their logo lights disabled.

The XJT pilots were running the logo lights during daylight hours.... all day. I really doubt the company saved money. Besides, the pilots were burning so much extra gas that light bulbs would have been a drop in the bucket.

I don't remember that happening too much. Yeah, there were a few folks that did that but, not many. We were doing slow taxis and didn't complain if we got 26R but, I didn't see anyone go out of their way to cost the company more money. A lot of folks quit trying to save money though.
