So while at work today, I was leaving T5 and getting on the airtrain. I noticed there was a cleaning crew at Terminal 6 (Jetblue old terminal) cleaning up the ticketing area and some new signage up. I decided to get a closer look and lo and behold there are computers at the ticket counter and the back drop behind the ticket counter says "Southwest"!

Very similar to this:



Anyone know what is going on?

The rational part of me says that perhaps they are going to film something there? Movie? Commercial? Or is southwest secretly setting up at JFK? I don't see how they can keep something like this secret though!

Now that I see up close pictures, it's weird that there is Jetblue signage mixed with Southwest Signage. If this was a true build, i'm guessing all of the B6 signage would have come down first.

Why would Southwest need to build a fake ticket counter in JFK for a commercial? They couldn't just use an ACTUAL ticket counter in one of it's many stations?

This appears to be photoshopped. The placards sizes are not even proportionally correct.

Photo 1 looks like there is still remodeling going on. I don't think WN would waste money remodeling an entire check in area to look like theirs for a commercial




Wonder if WN might be trying to get in these markets as they try to gain new revenue sources. I know they're flying from LGA now, but one has to wonder, with the F9 bid, BOS and LGA as well, I wonder how soon they'll have a premium type product on board much like European full service carriers do? My one and only WN flight was from MDW-SEA as it was free, I had the pleasure of sitting next to a newbie WN driver deadheading home after a trip into MDW. I talked to him for a good bid during the 4 hour excursing and among the things he said when he met with GK after being hired:

ANC, ATL, BOS, CUN, YYC, YVR, and possibly MEX were in the works. ANC definitly for cargo reasons. But I know the international thing is still in the works, but when? I would definitly give WN my business if they could get me to ANC from ORD, I guess I'd have to suffice for MDW.  Confused

The first things that struck me in the photo were those huge computer CRTs, they seem a bit dated. The word SOUTHWEST seems a bit small and the logo does not have "Southwest Airlines" printed on it and notice, no gold border on the bottom of the blue field. If this were a new WN station, I suspect that even the small details that I referenced, would correspond to all other WN stations.

As others have mentioned, this might be a set for a commercial or Film/TV.

Does this have anything to do with the DL LGA slot deal? If you ask me, when an airline looks like it might make a move, something else comes up. My guess is that JFK isn't working for DL and they will pare back operations there to transfer some the aircraft to LGA. They've downgraded some services at JFK internationally and repositioned a couple to ATL. They may consolidate more international flights to ATL or DTW.
However, DL's not dumb and wouldn't hand over slots at JFK to WN.
If you're DL and operate a number of JFK-Europe and beyond services plus LGA, then I'd think the JFK domestic services would be timed to connect to international flights. Except for flights over 1500 miles, the local market will be routed to LGA with multiple frequencies. JFK may get one frequency to many destinations, maybe two to others.
My guess is domestically, CO will continue to own EWR and total O&D from the NYC area, followed by DL at LGA and B6 at JFK. AA's still hanging in there,but may trim back service if DL up-gagues LGA services vs. current US opeations and enters AA markets. But, maybe DL will just stick in a bunch of RJs to baby sit the slots for a while and pullbacks at JFK may not be immediate.

I don't know much about LGA's operation, but if DL puts more mainline jets in there replacing US commuters, will we have a worsening congestion problem at LGA, especially with roadways and terminals?

Kind of the same reason they filed the move "The Terminal" on a set inside a hangar at PMD versus a real airport terminal. Kind of hard for it to function as one with the movie stuff going on..

And given the reality of commercial film wage scales, it's probably cheaper to rent out space and dress it as a commercial set than pay extravagant overtime rates to use a real ticket counter at, say, 3 AM.

That said, it looks...well, cheap, and wrong if you compare it to the real WN ticket desk. The proportions of the Southwest logo to the colored areas of the wall are wrong, the shade of blue doesn't look right, and there's no gold area at the bottom of the fake coloured area as there is on the real one. Also, it's not that hard to make out the words "JetBlue" on the counter signs, so unless shots that include that part of the counter are going to be from quite a bit further back, it will be noticed, and I'd think B6 would actually say something about it.

Well, since I work in the film industry and do graphics for films, TV & commercials, specifically (but not this commercial) I can probably explain this as:

1-There are film incentives in NY state, therefore, it mas economic sense to to this commercial at JFK.

2-Many, many ad agencies are in the NY area, this is close, there is no travel or overnights. A few signs are a heck of lot cheaper than dozens or hundreds of client/crew/agency of overnight stays out of the area.

3-No way any airport is going to disrupt operations for a commercial, TV show or film. Even Hollywood budgets could not cover what disrupting operations at an active terminal would cost. In this case, the old Jet Blue terminal not in use is reasonable. PMD is a favorite because it is close to LA and available, they lost all commercial service, but even at peak, they had just a handful of operations per day.

I've actually done graphics for fake airlines 'installed' at PMD. (I didn't work on The Terminal).

It would be nice to see WN in JFK. I'm going to JFK tomorrow and will try to look at it. But WN is a low-cost carrier and only B6 (as I know) is the only LCC in JFK. My guess is that they are shooting a commercial and I guess lots of them since they built a big set.

Southwest uses it's own ticket counters and gate areas for their commercials all the time.. In fact, Southwest runs their commercials on such a budget that they try and use company employees as actors in their commercials as much as possible. I doubt they would go to the trouble to build a whole false set (and not even correctly) for a simple "ticket counter scene".

My guess is that this may be a set for a film unrelated to Southwest. Perhaps this is just going to be a background for a scene in a movie or something..

That would make the most sense. Could be a movie mainly set in NY City or the area, but has scenes where someone is flying in from a city/airport where WN is dominate or involved a budget limited person. JetBlue is not a major competitor for WN, so no problem there. Maybe the PANYNY who operates JFK made an $$ deal a movie producer liked too.

The interesting part of the pictures I noticed is the actual Southwest logo....the heart surrounded by wings, which appears in the first picture. If this were a movie set and they were filming a generic airline scene, that logo wouldn't fit, because it is the real Southwest Airlines emblem.

Also, WN has used it's own ticket counters and gate podiums in numerous commercials, television shows and even movies. The end of Ocean's Twelve features Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and George Clooney departing from WN gates at LAS. It was filmed there and several WN employees were in the shot.

Although WN is shooting some new commercials soon.....they recently held a casting call for employees in Austin.

That could explain the lack of the gold stripe at the bottom, and the JetBlue signs on the front of the desks not being covered or changed, but it doesn't explain the logo-proportion, or that the colors look wrong compared to the real desk - most large corporations have standard colors, defined using a standard color chart (usually Pantone.)

Maybe it'll look better when it's finished and the color variance is from lighting, but right now it looks really shoddy...maybe they figure no one other than us A.nutters will notice?

Please be advised there is a movie being filmed through the next week at JFK T6. As part of this filming, Southwest Airlines signage has been installed at our former home in T6 as a backdrop for the movie.

Wondering if a new airline like Southwest could come to JFK? The airport is effectively closed to new airlines because of slot restrictions. In order for a new airline to begin service at JFK, they would have to acquire slots by buying or trading them from an existing airline at JFK. The airport is effectively closed to new airlines such as Southwest.

Because WN probably knew it would get all the geeks over here in a lather where a 50+ post thread would ensue where 20 said it was fake, 10 said it wasnt, another 10 added "I agree" posts 5 thinks they are merging with jetblue and 5 had no idea WN diddnt fly to JFK.

I also saw this WN setup at Terminal 6 yesterday. It looked real to me, and then I thought to myself how T6 would be a perfect terminal for WN to setup shop in if they ever started JFK. WN already has ISP, so this commercial makes sense.

Hmm...I was a film major in college wonder if they need help on set?  cheeky
