Name The Google Jet

In case you missed it, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin are apparently buying a Boeing 767. It may be for their personal use, or it may come out that they want to shuttle Googlers around.

I think it need a name, whatever the case. I joked it might be "Google Force One," but Air Google I suppose might work. Or AirGoogle? GoogleAir? Or will that be the name of the fleet, and the plane itself has a different name.

Anyway, got your own idea of a name? Jot it down here, I'll make up a poll after we get a few, and we can have a vote!

I've been to get my own SEOmoz 767 for a while now... Looks like they beat me to the punch. I bet they spent lots of Viagra AdSense click dollars on that.

Well considering how much data Google has collected, how they are processing it and making it available.. how about naming the new plane "Big Brother"

What's wrong with plain old GoogleJet? It would be consistent with Google's other naming conventions.

Could also be Gjet... GeeJet... or maybe jet.google.com.

FroogleJet feels like an oxymoron, though the purchase might turn out to be a cost saver.

A 767 is to large to land on the Black Rock City playa. This has to be a mistake!

How about eigenplane?

"eigenplane is a two-dimensional invariant subspace in a given vector space. By analogy with the term eigenvector for a vector which, when operated on by a linear operator is another vector which is a scalar multiple of itself, the term eigenplane can be used to describe a two-dimensional plane (a 2-plane), such that the operation of a linear operator on a vector in the 2-plane always yields another vector in the same 2-plane" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eigenplane



After all, he company is named after googol, 10 to the power of 100 (1 followed by 100 zeros); and the Head Office is named after googolplex (1 followed by a googol of zeroes); and the IPO filing was to raise $2,718,281,828, which was the product of "e" and $1 billion, (where "e" - Euler's number - is the base of the natural logarithm -and equals about 2.718281828).

Which would be much more politically correct than
STFW or
UTFG

I've heard* the Boeing 676 will have some other custom features:
  • The navigation system will be replaced by Google Earth. It can't find airports very well, but if you need the nearest hotel you are set!

  • Rather than going to the carousel and waiting for your luggage to come to you, you will go to a computer terminal and do a search. You will then be offered several million choices as to where in the airport your luggage might be, with their best guesses first. This is called "progress".

  • The food served will be better, but the only drinks available will be Jolt Cola and Starbucks coffee. Caffeine improves productivity.

  • First Class seats will be assigned to you based on how much you bid for them (AdSeats). If you are too cheap to bid, you will be sent back to coach and left to fight it out with the other passengers for a good seat.

  • CNet reporters are not allowed to board. No exceptions. Spammers ok, as long as they spend lots on AdSeats.

  • The seatbelts will be replaced with an "I'm Feeling Lucky" button.

We must have the same contacts Ian!
  • Besides the AdSeats bidding in First Class, the cargo section is being converted into the Supplemental Class - for travellers that attempt to duplicate tickets or whose tickets can no longer be found

  • Preflight Safety Demonstration has been replaced by "Do No Evil" indoctrination by Vint Cerf, Google Steward

  • All toilets will be labelled as "by Google - Beta"

  • Prototype jet-propulsion engine known as the Google Air Accelerator rumoured to save seconds on each trip

  • Mozilla aeronautical engineers are building an open-source counterpart.

Thumbs up It's not just in a namesake but more its a/c registration!

Hi All,

Like the thread or at least the idea behind it. Aircraft owners normally spend more time IMHO thinking about a suitable regristration for their planes as well as just the name of the bird... Ok I can't imagine why they'd consider taking the aircraft off a "N" November registration (US) for a UK "G" Golf listing except for the fact it could be something like: G-OOGL or G-OGLE instead of N12345.

Just a thought.

Happy landings all.

EG

Cool New Name(s)

For the fleet (should there be one), I like "Gaggle of Googles"

For the first plane, I am fond of "The Google Giggle"
