I don't know either, but, I am glad they do.

Response to I don't know why they bother

It gives me something to do, trying to catch as many as I can going into LAX.

I figured they do it for print advertisements, but I rarely see them. Maybe it is just for us. There is great interest among photographers, as there are many books and magazines on the subject.

Frontier even puts a different animal on the tail of their aircraft. No two tails of an aircraft type are the same.

Frontier Airlines, Airbus A319, Two Polar bear cubs,  N924FR

But, I see a lot of people at the airports shooting pictures. And when British changed their tail paint-schemes, about 10 years ago, there was a huge uproar that caused British to return to the British flag motiff. So, someone noticed.

I am guessing that many people don't even know or care what kind of airplane they are getting on.
