Coming in 2009: More Delta commercials than we ever wanted


Delta Airlines and the Yanks announced a major sponsorship deal yesterday afternoon. The Atlanta-based airline will now become the Official Airlines of the New York Yankees. In return, Delta gets extensive signage throughout the new stadium, a fancy luxury suite behind home plate and advertising in Yankee publications and on the game broadcasts. Terms of the deal were not announced, and I’m sure John Sterling is already practicing his Delta commercials as we speak.

    JetBlue would have been much cooler.

  2. A.D. says:

    Wasn’t someone else the “official airlines of the Yankees” or am I making that up?

    “an abomb from arod just hit afirst class delta plane flying out of jfk!”

      How about a daily sponsored fart in the broadcast booth.

      Suzyn “. . of John, please. I’m gonna puke. You had to eat broccoli again?”

      John “You know what they say Suzie, whoever smelt it, dealt it. And speaking of Delta, did you know Delta has $99 flights to sunny Florida all this week?”

    It’s in the paper that this site doesnt like to talk about…but sounds like Cano is in great shape:

  5. RollingWave says:

    i guess now that oil price came down, all these air liners are back from the dead.

    then again, just wait a few more months before they start crying poverty again.

    oh guisseppe franco, where art thou

    Do people really buy things based on being the official this or that of the New York Yankees? I am glad they got the deal hopefully it will pay for Manny’s new contract with the Yankees.
