What they’re saying:
- Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of brand marketing and advertising: “Guests of all ages will be eager to toy with an adventure after hearing the buzz around our new Toy Story 4 livery. Many of us have grown up following the iconic characters, and we’re happy to take the toys to new heights, sharing the playful, heartwarming imagery with travelers across our coast-to-coast network––and beyond.”
- Toy Story 4 producers Mark Nielsen and Jonas Rivera: “We’ve seen Woody and the rest of the toys in a lot of unexpected places over the years. And this time, we’ll see them in an RV, at an antique store and in the inner workings of a carnival. But how many people can say they’ve seen them at 35,000 feet?”
