I've seen a few 737's painted like that (or maybe it was just one or two that I kept seeing over and over?) and I kinda liked it. I can't remember for sure, but they might have had USAirways.com and something about a "no-brainer" as well. Not crazy about that part, but I liked the bare aluminum and the dark blue.
