IIRC I voted for the Sapphire Swirl tail.

I voted for Number 11 as it's very artsy fartsy and pretentious, much like the NYC art/fashion scene.  

The other ones are nice enough, but too similar to what they already have.

One of those 5 tails is the anniversary tail...

Photos of the new design are up on jetBlue's Flickr page. It is a 10th anniversary livery.
Here is one photo:

...Well that's different.

(Edit... I like it but it's very different. I was prepared for different when the "new/modified" livery was being introduced a few months ago and I was disappointed to find that the only real change was making the titles larger. Now, they give me different and I'm stunned - ha.)

Wow! I'll second that, 0NEWAIR0! I was voting for Retro-Ringlets myself, but this would've been my second choice   . I am glad they incorporated orange somewhere, however - albeit on the anniversary plane. I'll take it! Congratulations B6! Here's to another 10!


Fierce, Fabulous, and Flawless ;)

"in the year 2000, like a beacon shining into the night, a new airline arrived on the scene. An airline that would restore humanity to the skies. An airline with legroom, leather seats, and delicious free snacks. An airline that understood people stuck in metal tubes like to have things to look at. An airline with free TVs in every seat and 100 channels of XM radio. An airline called jetBlue, with service to, uh, Buffalo, uh, and Fort Lauderdale. So it was a bit of a humble start."

I quite like it, not too bad. I would have preferred retro ringlets too and I'm really glad that it wasn't basket weave.

Wow, I can't believe it has been 10 years of jetBlue.

Just to show how much the industry has changed: Back then, they were competing with Delta Express 737-200s and TWA MD-80s from NYC-South Florida.

The big celebration was supposed to be today at the JFK Technical Operations Center (Hangar 81) but was cancelled as we are rebounding from the snow storm yesterday.


As a side note, since it seems there is confusion on here, there were 2 paint things released today:
- The tail with the 10's all over it is the 10th anniversary c/s. This (based on everything I know) will only be on this one a/c.
- The "Building Blocks" tail design would be the new tail design which should go in with the rotation of the tail designs as they come out of the factory or re-paint line, the fuselage will be in the new design (larger font over the windows).

Hope this helps.

Happy Birthday jetBlue! I am not always the biggest fan of LCCs and LFCs, but jetBlue has always struck me as a very classy operation! A tip of the winglet to you, B6!

Thanks for the info, do you expect that there will be a celebration later on? Will there be anything at MCO like last time?

Based on what B6 is telling its crewmembers through internal communications, this is going to be a year long celebration with contests and give-aways, and I am sure they are going to make the summer bar-b-que series even bigger this year. I know here at H81 we did a lunch for everyone here today and had a 10th anniversary cake and whatnot. I have a feeling the individual facilities/departments may have been told to throw their own little party since the big one was cancelled. The 10th anniversary a/c was also supposed to be at the big party for a special unveiling and whatnot but I saw her operating as a regular flight during the luncheon.

Whenever they get around to introducing yet more tail designs, I hope they reconsider the other entries.

28 Post contains images jetblue777 : Happy Birthday B6! "Building Blocks" really looks nice! I also really like the 10th anniversary livery, its something new and fresh
29 ColAvionLover : What a gorgeous Livery! I like it a lot. It's a cool idea of jetBlue of having diferents desings on their fleet.
30 B6JFKH81 : I don't know if that should have been released on YouTube...BlueTube maybe. But, that video is property of JetBlue so it shouldn't be going onto YouT
31 Plainplane : JetBlueCorpComm is JetBlue's official YouTube channel. It seems it has been somewhat neglected as of lately, they didn't even put the Blueberry celeb

33 JBAirwaysFan : This may be weird, but their 10th anniversary livery kind of reminds me of Ted.
34 Blueman87 : Happy Birthday B6 looking forward to the next 10
35 AviatorTJ : I thought the exact same thing. There's only so much you can do with a white plane, blue titles and orange accents.
36 ridgid727 : If I recall Fokker had someting like that on their compnay liveries, although I think theirs was far more attractive than this. If thats all the bette
