Just a cute slogan / advertising stunt by Jetblue I think...

There's a 1970's song entitled, "Me and you and a DOG named Blue". This is a play on words, as are many of their other aircraft names, "It's me and Blue, Kid," etc.

Is there a list of all the B6 names? I did a search for the names "Mr. Blue" (an old Fleetwoods song) and "Blue On Blue" (the Bobby Vinton song) but didn't get matches for either one in the photo search.

http://www.planespotters.net/Airline/JetBlue-Airways

It's a fairly complete list, only missing names for a handful of their newest A320s. Based on this list, and some other sources, I think this one may be N746JB, which they just received.

To answer your question, JetBlue has a unique name given to each aircraft, all containing Blue in some form or another; be it tweaking around an old song, rhymes, etc. For example: "Badda Bing Badda Blue", "Wild Blue Yonder", "Blue Moon", etc.

I was answering the overall question of why jetBlue has names on each of its aircraft: not figuring out what song that was, who wrote it and how long ago.

Sorry, but I bought the record in 1970 (or was it '71?), so I recognised the play on words straight away. For what it's worth, American popular music does make its way to the far-flung corners of the globe, thankfully.

Thankfully some times, unfortunately other times. Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson comes to mind Big grin

Happy to see one of my fav tracks with New Order on that list "Blue Monday", and while not there "Mr Blue" is also a great track with Yaz/Yazoo  Smile

I think it's funny and very good PR to name them like that!

You mean "A boy named Sue"? That one actually popped up in my head as well reading that list.
And Depeche Mode made a song called Blue Dress, so there is plenty of material to name planes from  Smile

Actually I like the Jetblue theme.. I think it is smart. I would love to fly on them but they do not serve MEM. All my friends and even my mother who have flown on Jetblue have said they really like them. I fly AirTran. Even last minute fares are reasonable compared to Dl or NW who I will never fly again. Also you can upgrade to Biz class for 49 bucks usually. Try that on DL or NW. I had a last min flight I had to book. it would have cost me 200 dollars more for a one way ticket in coach to fly DL or NW than I got for a biz class seat on FL.

Think of the brighter side!
25 Wukka : It's actually "New Dress", and you probably wouldn't want those lyrics anywhere near an airplane, even if you substitute "New" for "Blue".
26 Post contains images JohnKrist : Doh, fan since 1981, long time record collector and I blew that one, very embarrassing... And yes, the Jet airliner part makes it somewhat questionab
27 Mainliner : If you ask me, B6 is grasping at straws for "cute" blue airplane names. Hasta Bluego? I "heart" Blue?? Please.
28 OzarkD9S : Thanks. Looks like my two make better names than a few of those they've come up with!
29 Mainliner : No, it is Blue Dress.
30 Argonaut : Wasn't that by Monica Lewinsky? Big hit in 1998 or thereabouts, I seem to recall...
31 HAWK21M : Any aircraft named "Blue wings" yet? regds MEL
