In honor of AYCJ (All You Can Jet) a special livery will be unveiled Sept 7th T-5 at gate 16 between 10am and noon. Plane is wrapped up at H81. I'm working tomorrow so I'm gonna try and get some pics if I'm not working at flight.

It would be really neat if they incorporated the Building Blocks tail design from that contest a while back.

Saw aircraft 531JL in MCO at the hangar in the new livery tonight.
It has been here undercover for nearly a week. Named "All Blue Can Jet". I did not have time to snap a picture, and not to give anything away but stylized jetBlue colors with orange.

I'm fairly certain that "Building Blocks will be introduced soon, but when exactly I'm not sure. My best guestimate would be by the end of 2010.

Sounds like you're giving away too much as it is   .

Prepare to be underwhelmed.... my guess is that the tail will feature a graphic listing every (or at least most) JetBlue "destinations"....

The point of this livery is basically a shameless promotion of their successful "All You Can Jet" campaign (tickets were only sold for a few days!) and, if I am right, it would also be a sort of rolling advertisement of the cities JetBlue flies to.
I've heard that internal promotions for the All You Can Jet graphics featured some errors and at least a couple of city omissions. It will be interesting to see if the livery also contains these errors (I would hope not!) or if the livery is way toned down from what I am expecting. If it is just a huge "AYCJ" or something similar on the tail, I will be the first to say I'm disappointed!

Left my camera at home but you can always count on someone to come thru on here.

They gave out t-shirts promoting AYCJ which has all the names of the cities we fly too. Well, they misspelled Burlington on the the shirt but we got a company contest out of it. Shirts as far as I know were giving out to crewmembers only. I chose not to get one because, well they look very corney which is no surprise. I work for a very corney airline. Anyway, plane looks good. Not too flashy. From looking at our FIDS, doesn't look like its going out at least until tonight.

Like the tail, but they could have at least done something more with the rest of the plane.

I've always wanted JetBlue to continue their tails down through the empennage, I think it would look amazing.

Eh..
I don't know.. It kinda reminds me of the carpeting inside T5.
I was expecting much more of the AYCJ theme, other than the name.



Opinions are like @ssholes. Everyone has one, and everyone thinks everyone elses stinks!

I'm with you on that one!
I think it is just another tail scheme and I don't particularly like it more or less than some of the other ones. I will say that the original "stripes" tail looks very old and dated these days, but otherwise I just cannot get excited about some thin orange stripes on this one.

There are going to be a few aircraft that have different endings as these were the aircraft that were sold to Blue Wings and are now coming back into the fleet. I think the original tail numbers (which these will have the same NUMBERS but different letters) were taken/re-issues.
