To mark JetBlue's 10th anniversary, the grapevine has it that JetBlue will be unveiling a new livery on Tuesday (10/13) evening in Orlando at the LiveTV hangar. From what I understand, it will be a fleet wide change. Anyone know what it looks like or have presumptions? I am very excited to see what it is!

If it's fleet-wide, I'd guess no more than a small touch up. And bigger fonts.

Otherwise I don't see the need, their livery is very nice as is.

A fleet wide change? That's interesting - it's going to be a major undertaking. I hope it's something that's added onto the current scheme. I like the different tail designs and hope those stick. Maybe adding something a little extra to the rather bland, white body would be a good move.

Can't wait to see the photos!

I thought the JetBlue livery was rather timeless and appealing. I don't think this ought to fall into the 'need-to-do' category...especially in this fragile airline economy. Having said that, I'll bet whatever design they come up with will look nice.

A little change probably won't be a big deal. I bet it will be something small, but noticable. Not a whole rebranding with a new image, just a refreshed paint job like what AirTran did a few years back.

Agreed, I find B6's current livery to be VERY appealing and excellent for what it sets out to do. I hope the change isn't too drastic (though I'd love to see a unique tail for every plane similar to F9, I think that'd be cool though perhaps cost inefficient).

I imagine its probably a relatively minor change - their unique tail schemes are pretty popular, I'd say. But then again, BA had those at one point and then went back to a uniform fleet-wide paintjob. Will be interesting to see what happens.

Has there ever been a more controversial airline color scheme than the BA world tails? I miss those a lot, but I know that there a lot of people who don't.

They haven't said anything about this, internally speaking and if it does happen, to make it for the entire fleet makes no sense and I don't see that happening. If this is true, they'll do what they did for the T-5 opening and make just a few planes with the livery on it. The current livery is just fine and to waste money in making over the entire fleet with the company pretty much sitll a baby, well I just don't see the need.

157 N623JB : I wonder whats on the tail..and also...is the color of the font of "jetBlue" different? hmm..
158 JetMarc : Looks like they may have ditched the silver "jet" which I actually liked...
159 Richierich : Hard to see definitively under the 'camo', but it sure looks like the word jetBlue is in different colors. It looks like the corporate dark blue for
160 B6JFKH81 : Hate to tell ya, but the tail design isn't anything special either IMHO. Almost a cross between 2 existing ones with a twist. Now, from what I underst
161 EMBQA : Yea.. your wash and wax program adds years to the life of the paint. A little effort on the front side saves in the long run. It will be years until
162 Max550 : So they increased the font size and removed the www. from the engines. Hard to notice a difference but B6 aircraft already look pretty good (for a bas
163 Bkircher : I like it!!!! I cant wait to see the tail!
164 DL752 : I wonder if the new name location will be changed fleet wide and the tail design will just be another added into the group. If this is the way its goi
165 PA110 : It never ceases to amaze me how emotionally vested a.nutters get in an airline's livery. I understand B6 is enlarging the titles, however is the new t
166 JetBlue777 : Im dissapointed Unless that plane was a decoy
167 NASBWI : As I see it, the tail design will become one of the 7 existing tails circulating throughout the fleet (Blue 100 notwithstanding).[Edited 2009-10-13 1
168 JetMarc : I'm predicting a lot of random blue dots like confetti from one of the uniform scarves. Or a bunch of big circles spaced closely so that you can't tel

173 BMI727 : Looks great, not a big change. Just a freshening of the image. I love being right.
174 0NEWAIR0 : I think they should have put the logo closer to the first window. ...just sayin'.
175 Contrails15 : LMAO My company is so cheesy. This marketing gimic, and thats all it is, is no surprise to me. Many of you will bitch about what it looks like, people
176 JetMarc : I'm not a big fan of the ® registered trade mark logo as part of the livery. I remember when Delta used to do that on everything - even etched on the
177 0NEWAIR0 : That is definitely an orange marker.
178 ThirteenRight : I change my opinion. I *really* like the bigger titles now that I see the clear pic of it.
179 N766UA : I think it looks good, and there was nothing inherantly wrong with it before. The only "let down" is because the rampant speculators on this forum had

182 Post contains images ThirteenRight : here it is ... I think it's awesome!!
183 Bkircher : The tail looks cool, but Im confused as to why it only covers 3/4s of the tail.
184 Murchmo : looks fine. but um...why the big deal? They had an "event" for this? I think it looks good and all but i'd hardly call it a new livery.
185 0NEWAIR0 : Yes, the tail is awesome![Edited 2009-10-13 16:45:53]
186 LACA773 : It apperas they added some paint to the wingtips as well. It adds a little considering they were boring white previously. How many new tailfin designs
187 ThirteenRight : I hope this becomes the tail for every aircraft. I think its perfect!
188 Blueman87 : No Front Picks
189 B6JFKH81 : A cross between the bubbles tail and the Blue100 tail Too bad they made it white on the top of the tail
190 B6JFKH81 : Our wingtip fences have been painted blue since our first aircraft was delivered from airbus in 1999...
191 Shamrock350 : I like it but at the same time I think it looks a bit unfinished. I wish they would have been a bit braver and added a splash of orange in there somew
192 ThirteenRight : ... or they could have extended the "bubbles" into the fuselage
193 Blueman87 : Agreed after i look at it again i agree with you and to the top of the tail
194 ExFATboy : I like the new tail, and the larger logo is fine, I'm glad they resisted the temptation to go "billboard"...but still, a minor change, really over-hyp
195 Lrdc9 : Ick. It would be pretty cool if they hadn't left that top part white.
196 JetBlue777 : I like the tail and surprisingly the bigger titles looks good! Not a big change though, but I would like 'em to change the belly livery design.
197 Cactus739 : I like the new tail... but not sure how I feel about the bigger jetBlue up front... the windows really cut the letters apart...
198 Micstatic : I like the bigger titles for sure. The concept of the tail is neat, but the white on the top of the tail as stated above is pretty bad. I also agree t
199 Ikramerica : I like the tail but the jetBlue is obscured by the light blue. Maybe it's just the lighting and exposure.
200 DL752 : Looking good! The only thing I would change is the little white section on the top of the tail. I really like the tail design and hope to see one soon
201 Micstatic : They should have just kept the bubbles going all the way to the top. Wonder what a black and/or orange outline would do?
202 Post contains links and images Pensacolaguy : I like the change..Why to much hype about it though. I thought there was going to be one paint scheme for all the aircraft..Guess not. Anyone else not
203 JustinPistone : Does anyone know when this bird will be leaving MCO?
204 EMBQA : My guess would be first thing in the morning. Airplanes don't make money sitting in hangars
205 USFlyer MSP : I dont like it...it looks like Independence Air
206 Post contains links and images PITrules : That was a great livery! View Large View MediumPhoto © Mark Kopczak
207 JetBlue : I thought the same thing... Agreed, it's a neat tail design, but the white up there really looks odd. The circles should go all the way up. On that n
208 Aloha717200 : Yawn. Really boring.
209 Werdywerd : I'm growing to liking it. My only concern is when the passenger window shades are down in the first few rows. How will the logo look then?
210 N766UA : Actually, uhhh, why did they paint a giant (R) next to the titles? Do they not own the rights to their own logo?
211 NASBWI : Well yes, but there was that little trademarking issue with the airline based in Pakistan not long ago . Perhaps there's some kind of method to the m
212 Eightball : It may not be a major change, but it's a pleasant change nonetheless. A classy livery has now become classier. Imagine if this livery was applied to a
213 Dc863 : Wow yet another carrier opts for a billboard scheme......................how revolutionary and different. *YAWN*
214 Jetbluefan1 : I'm a fan of the bigger font - definitely stands out and looks nothing like any other U.S. carriers out there. I also love the new tail design, though
215 FlyDeltaJets87 : I think it looks good, except for the tail looks unfinished. Like they ran out of paint 2/3rds of the way up.
216 Ridgid727 : Wow. Give their designer a BLUE ribbon. IIt is a major rebranding! (LOL)
217 JetBlueAtJFK : Yea I saw it today at MCO with the dumb sheet over it and the people at the gate were talking about it and pointing over to it. They knew it had circl

222 Blueman87 : when it goin into service again? and is this goin to be Fleet wide on all there Planes?
223 SKYYBLUE : This "blueberries" tail is actually a 'new' tail that will be rotated in with the rest of the fleet. There will be a design contest for employees and
224 Blueman87 : Love It thanks for posting
225 Blueman87 : Oh so only thing thats changing is how jetBlue is written on the Plane
226 Jetbluefan1 : Great picture. I think the plane actually looks classy - the white on the tail actually looks better when looking at the plane as a whole. I hope Jet
227 SKYYBLUE : From what I understand, yes. The "blueberries" tail will be incorporated into the fleet just like the other tails. The 'tartan' tail is being phased
228 Blueman87 : Tartan is the Stripe or the dimond or bubble
229 Blueman87 : i hope i see titles on the E190

231 Blueman87 : Thanks
232 UAL747DEN : This looks much better than the new one. I really think that the new one looks like crap.
233 Plainplane : The aircraft is supposed to go back into service tomorrow morning, from what I was told.
234 Tharanga : In your picture, the 'jetblue' on the tail is more legible, so that's good. it was harder to read in the previous pics.
235 Birdwatching : So if the plane was painted in Mexico, how did they fly it to Florida without anybody taking a photo before the unveiling? Did they fly it with coveri
236 Plainplane : The aircraft was flown in Monday evening, it arrived at 8:30PM. It was too dark for anyone to possibly get a photo and nobody wanted it to leak out ea
237 Blueman87 : whens this aircraft back in service
238 Whappeh : I just saw it in person outside Jet Blue U here in Orlando. Actually looks pretty good in person, if a bit bland.
239 MrSkyGuy : Wow, I got one right for a change.
240 Post contains links and images Rikkus67 : I like the overall IDEA of the new tail design, but I have to agree with everyone else, that the tail looks incomplete. My thought is either a 10th an
241 UAL747DEN : That was one of the best United liveries! I wish they would have found somewhere for the orange in the new c/s.
242 JetBlueAtJFK : Yea that's what I was saying in my post. They flew it in at dark, then taxied right over and covered up the logos in the dark. B6jfk
243 Richierich : Actually, it reminded me of Pan Am!
244 MSPNWA : My reaction: I don't like the titles intermingling with the windows. There's way too much white for a "blue" airline. And the tail looks incomplete. I
245 TUNisia : How will the millions of dollars spent on this re-branding impact pax decisions to choose B6 over another carrier? IMHO it's a very unattractive liver
246 Contrails15 : I don't understand what most of you were expecting. The airline isn't in a situation like Delta where they wanted to change there image to the fullest
247 InTheSky74 : The aircraft was at the gate this evening ready to fly out... so I'm assuming that it's out of MCO now.
248 EMBQA : it will be years.......
249 SKYYBLUE : What millions of dollars are you talking about? The designer is in-house and it's being applied as aircraft rotate through the "paint-shop"...which i

254 Icebird757 : I think that the registred R trademark next to the titles looks a little lame. They should remove that.
255 BMI727 : The white part of the upper tail looks a lot better in that picture than the ones of just the tail.
