Now that's a pretty damn cool release! Just looking through the flickr stream I can see some pics that we will have no use for (staff Halloween party, anyone?) but a *whole bunch* that we can - individual airframes, maintenance work underway, plane interiors (inc. the cockpit) and fittings, ground equipment, security/emergency drills... Useful for much more than just articles specifically relating to Jetstar itself.
I've often advocated to commercial organisations that since the *point* of their taking marketing photos is to get people to use them, making them available to us to potentially use is a big opportunity. While we don't use them in an directly promotional way, surely having *your* product being available to be used as the canonical visual representation of its category on the relevant Wikipedia (in this case for example a Boeing plane painted in your company colours) is a good business-case to make to their marketing and legal teams!
