I'm puzzled by this. I took a photo today of a plane leaving a contrail at cruise altitude and I can very clearly see the paint color - the bottom is navy blue which does not extend all the way to the tip of the fuselage, and it has navy blue engines, and the upper fuselage is light colored I believe white.

It looks almost identical to this picture:

But now the problem: it was flying high over the Nashville airport, going east I believe. Jetblue does not fly anywhere in the southeast outside of Florida, right? To any of the jetBlue folks, do you have any idea what city pairs could make this route over Nashville? BTW, this was at 5:42pm.

Or, what other airline has a similar color scheme? This plane looks like an Airbus from the shape of the tailcone. I know it cant be United. Their blue bottom goes all the way to the end. And its not Northwest because NWA does not have blue engines.

Jet Blue flies to DEN, SAN, LGB, OAK and a lot of other left coast cities.

yes.....but....... not from the southeast. Long Beach - Dulles most likely takes a path further north from the looks of it on a map. DEN is too far north.

If it was a SAN or LGB flight transcon the routing wouldn't make a lot of sense, its far out of the way.

I left out of my original post - I see they do fly to ATL from the west coast, but the flights are all overnighters.

They are now, but during the summer they offered morning and afternoon departures between LGB and ATL and visa-versa.

It could have definitely been JetBlue.. and it could have been any one of the LGB, SAN, or LAS flights. It could have even been an OAK flight. ATC is constantly working out reroutes to reduce the number of flights in poor weather or heavily congested areas. If weather or traffic is a problem for Indy or Cleveland Center, it's not uncommon for some transcon traffic to be rerouted south via Memphis and Atlanta Centers. Also, it could be as simple as more favorable winds south of what the "normal" route would be.

If you want to see some really fun reroutes, wait till Spring when strong thunderstorms become a problem over the Midwest. It's not terribly uncommon for LA-NYC flights fly over PHX, ELP, IAH, MSY, and ATL.

Well, definitely a Jetblue plane, you can see the website on the engine and the tail paint scheme.

Could it have been USA3000? They fly A320's from the NE to Florida.

I looked at the usa3000.com website and the blue covers the whole bottom of the aircraft. So it must have been JetBlue.
