    I don't mean this as a slant towards ATL and the current situation, but why not in their own back yard (Delta)?

    Sharks have had sponsorship agreements with a number of different airlines over the years. Southwest is coming to mind at the moment.

    Could be that the Kings reached out. Could be that Delta wants more business out of LAX/etc. :dunno:

    Makes sense. I was just thinking why it didn't happen awhile ago with the Thrashers or even the Hawks. Must of had their reasons.

    Speaking of Southwest, maybe there's an opportunity yet to be had in ATL when the M&A finalizes later this year with AirTran. AirTran already has a 717 dubbed the "Dirty Bird One", I mean Falcon 1, among a whole bunch of other Special Liveries.

    I believe it has happened. Per a press release from 2006 (http://news.delta.com/index.php?s=43&item=41)

    Last time I was through Hartsfield-Jackson (Oct 08) Delta had a thing proclaiming itself as the official airline of the Braves, Hawks, and Thrashers.
