Quoting LAXintl (Thread starter):
- The winning tailfin will be revealed on JetBlue's 10th Anniversary, February 11, 2010, and painted on a JetBlue aircraft in 2010.

I missed their 10th anniversary was that close.

Finally, another new tail (as an enthusiast, I enjoyed the anual 'new tail.') Note: I understand it was wise not to do every aircraft in each year with one tail (or, if I recall correctly, three during year #1).

All five designs are great. It looks like #11 is going to win. But... only a few hundred votes, the order will probably change.

I really like the Retro-ringlets, it adds a bit of orange to the livery which has always been part of the jetBlue image but hasn't appeared on the aircraft.

When I was flying home to SDF from MCO last week, I noticed a jetBlue plane land that I thought had the top of it's tail ripped off by a birdstrike or something. Seriously. I did a double take. It was actually the 10th Anniversary Livery. I LOVE the titles and the design on the tail. However, the color needed to go all the way up the tail. Stopping it a few feet from the top and painting it white made it look like someone took a chunk out of the tail against a gloomy sky.

Cheers,
Drew MCO

It just got my vote. I'm into the retro these days rather than all the boring blah that is around these days!

I also like most things retro and therefore voted for the Retro-ringlets-looks psychedelic. I wonder if any of the 5 people whose design made the finals is here (I know a lot of crewmembers post)?

Boy, that "basket weave" design can't get any love.  Sad

I can understand why, since it is the most conventional of the suggestions, but it really fits in well with the rest of the tails, which is an element of design that I can appreciate. I'd hope that it does make it onto a tail eventually.

I voted on the Retro Ringlets.
The Sapphire is also a good one, similar to the Retro Ringlets but it lacks orange.
Number 11 looks like that half the fin is missing.
Basket Weave and Building Blocks is a definite NO for me.

Winglets or Raked Wingtips?

Exactly! I always thought that when it came to the 10th Anniversary livery, that although well-done, the white part at the top should've had perhaps an 'orange' berry to fill some of the gap and compliment the different shades of blue. I fully support adding orange (albeit just a touch) to the tail designs.

Better yet, if there were to be an updated livery, add a thin orange stripe to the light blue one along the underside. My money's on retro-ringlets on this round. Cheers!

I would like to see them do some sort of wave design on the tail as a tribute to their vacation destinations.

Nº11 is my favorite. Sapphire swirl is nice, and as a more "airliner" inspiration. The rest is not very interesting, and probably won't work in distance. In all cases the Jet Blue lettering seems to throw with not much care...

Merry Christmas everybody.  santahat

Coincidentally, didn't realize JetBlue had a 10th anniversary logojet flying...what does the design look like?

Looks like it's between N11, Retro ringlets and sapphire swirl. Don't dig the retro just becuase of the orange. Swirl isn't too bad IMO.
