A FACE LIKE THE SIDE OF A PLANE: A rich mans knows you can never have too much money, which is presumably why Elton John has signed up to appear on the side of AirTran planes. Or maybe it's just the thrill of imagining his face suddenly appearing through the clouds, kind of like a latter day God:

"This plane looks fantastic" said Elton, unveiling a plane with his face on the side and displaying the sort of level of modesty you'd expect from a man who has been painted on the side of a 717. Apparently, his head is the size of the Statue of Liberty. Which means that the image on the side is a life-size portrait of his ego.

This is all to promote the new AirTran service, which allows people flying on its rather fine fleet to listen in to XM Satellite Radio, a first for any airline and actually quite a leap forward in wht you get offered onboard planes through the headphones. Plus, AirTran give you brilliant little ginger biscuits, and, best of all, when you're on one of their planes, you won't be able to see Elton John peering back at you.
