DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We're showing you live pictures right now from Seattle, Washington. This is the corporate jet for Boeing, the company, the aerospace company that has announced it is leaving the Seattle area and it has come down to three cities -- Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and Denver. They have decided they're not just going to make the announcement. The corporate jet is going to take off from Seattle. They have filed three separate flight plans so they could go to any of the cities.

LEON HARRIS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: What?

KAGAN: This is how they're going to do it. And then when they're up in the air, they're going to call the city that they've picked and that's where they're going to land.

HARRIS: You're kidding?

KAGAN: It's kind of a P.R. stunt, but clever.

HARRIS: OK.

KAGAN: Better than just sitting...

HARRIS: It got our attention.

KAGAN: It did. It's better than sitting in front of a podium. But this is, of course, an interesting stunt, but of a great significance, of economic impact to the northwest area, which is losing much of Boeing, and also Chicago, Dallas and Denver, that would very much like to get that company and that business.

When we find out which city it is, we'll let you know.

HARRIS: So in the meantime you've got people flying, rushing to each airport in each different city looking for a Boeing plane?

KAGAN: I guess that's the idea. Well, maybe they get a phone call first from the air. They're going to call from the air and say guess what, blankety blank, you're it.

HARRIS: Turn around, go back home and then get it?

KAGAN: Yes.

HARRIS: OK.

KAGAN: Or if you don't get the phone call, maybe, then that's the sign that you should go.

HARRIS: OK. Well, we shall see.

KAGAN: Entertaining.

HARRIS: Yeah, to somebody, I suppose.
