Does anyone else think this aircraft livery looks like a ripoff of jetblue?

RE: Men Vs. Women Gate Agents

Hey flyboy,

the reason gate agents open the door is due to safety. That way the flight attendant is aware that the jetbridge is pulled up to the aircraft.
Oh yeah, to stay on topic. As a revenue pax I prefer a male gate agent, but as a non-revenue, I prefer a female gate agent.
