A jumbo-sized photo of the late singer has been affixed to the tail fin of two Norwegian jets in celebration of what would have been his 71st birthday on September 5th.
Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s chief commercial officer, says: “As Norwegian continues its rapid expansion in the U.K., our ‘tail fin heroes’ offer us a perfect chance to pay tribute to some of the greatest Britons of all time.
“Freddie Mercury inspired generations of music fans around the globe and it is a huge honor to have one of the greatest singers of all time adorn our aircraft.”
Look for Freddie to take flight later this summer.
On the other hand, Brian May was disappointed by his British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles for the start of the Queen + Adam Lambert tour earlier this month.
What bugged him was that his First Class seat kept him from seeing out the window. "I hate it. It costs an arm and a leg to travel this way and I feel that we no longer get our money's worth. In the old days you sat right next to the window and the view was wide and spectacular. Now they sit you about three feet from the window and so low down all you can see from your seat is a small patch of sky. It's boring - frustrating."
