A photo of the plane, the first to sport a Major League Baseball uniform, was not available yesterday. JetBlue, the largest carrier at Logan, is the official Red Sox airline sponsor.

It isn’t the first time airlines have tried to capitalize on the Red Sox brand. In 2005, Delta Air Lines Inc.’s Song affiliate rechristened a Boeing 757 “Big Papi’’ after Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.
