Happy 17th Birthday jetBlue! Most teenagers get a new car, but jetBlue (B6) is dressing up their planes in celebration!
jetBlue announced today that new livery and tailfin design will be added to their aircraft network.
The new livery will be debuting on an Embraer 190. Called “Blueprint”, the new paint job will reflect a sort of x-ray view into the inside of the cabin – showing the outline of seats, overhead bins, jet engine, and the cargo hold. The new livery debuted at Boston Logan Airport, and you can potentially catch it on any route serviced by an E190.
jetBlue usually dresses up their A320s in special livery, so this occasion marks the first time an E190 received the special treatment.
Boston’s not the only town receiving some jetBlue love these days. The self pro-claimed ” New York’s Hometown Airline” is giving NYC some love by debuting a new tailfin design that reflects the iconic city lights and sky scrapers. The new tailfin design – called “Highrise” – features a color pattern that can be rearranged, so you might be seeing slightly different versions of this tailfin. The design will debut in New York (JFK), but be on the lookout at B6 rolls out the pattern other aircraft across the network.
I’ll admit I’m not entirely sold on this “New York’s Hometown Airline” thing, but I can appreciate new livery and design to celebrate another anniversary. A big congratulations to jetBlue for 17 years of great service!
Have any of you seen the new tailfin design or livery in your travels? Leave us a note of any planespotting you’ve done!
