jetBlue Announcement Tomorrow, 2/27?

Tue Feb 26, 2019 8:30 pm

It looks like jetBlue has deleted all of the content off their Instagram profile and replaced it with a single plain white photograph with the caption, “Our pics may be gone, but your chance to win big is arriving 2.27.29”. Any idea what the “big” reveal is for?

They're having a big sale going on right now: https://www.elitedaily.com/p/jetblues-b ... p-16171753

Not sure what the reference to tomorrow is, but I'm skeptical of it being any new route. jetBlue is not really in the position to grow new routes/capacity at the moment.

here is what we were told...
"You may have noticed that we deleted all of our Instagram posts from public view this morning. Don’t be alarmed!

We’ve got a promotion for Customers kicking off this week – and our latest social media stunt is aimed to build anticipation and excitement for what we’ll announce on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Stay tuned for more details this week!"

Europe announcement is the 15th... just have no idea what month... lol

They're probably just announcing some sort of airfare sale. I wouldn't get too worked up about it. As someone mentioned earlier, jetBlue isn't really in a position to expand right now, and I doubt you'll see any new routes and/or destinations for a while.

Must be launching flights to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Madrid, Frankfurt, Munich, Rome, Zürich, Lisbon, Edinburgh, Warsaw, Düsseldorf, Venice, Barcelona, Vienna, Brussels, Glasgow, Málaga, Stockholm, and Milan. :roll:

In all honesty, I highly doubt it's even a new route announcement. Probably related to sales, or some sort of big offer. Maybe like 1 or 2 routes from either JFK/BOS to destinations already served by B6, but that's probably the max.

I don’t think Europe can be ‘imminent’ if the planes aren’t.

The pilots think it might be London based off some weird internal flightops email.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this has something to do with the first of a certain month beginning with A.

Why not move flights to KONT and build up more flights.
Why endure the nightmare and congestion of LAX when BUR, LGB, ONT & SNA is so much easier to fly in and out of. Same with OAK & SJC when it comes to SFO.

Highly unlikely it’s london.

More likely Boston shuttle service to fend off DAL attack on bean town.

They don’t have any LHR slots and filed a protest against slot holding US carriers.

I would think if it were new route announcements you'd see airports on their own social media accounts teasing us of some upcoming news.

Here's a link to the Instagram post. It's probably some chance to win sweepstakes or some re-branding thing.

I do think it is weird that they deleted all of their Instagram photos and posted a complete white image. Very non-traditional but not a bad thing I suppose.

Makes me think a re-branding might be coming. The removal of all images could represent an "out with the old and in with the new"

Hard to believe they delete their Instagram content for a promotion. But you never know when you put marketing people in charge of something.

The best guess is a rebrand of some sort with a few route announcements to compliment the big celebration. There really is no other reason to clear all social media content, no?

In my thoughts: Merger announcement, possibly with United

In reality: Social media sweepstakes/contest. You'd think there would be more news/hype around a re-branding, such as employees having a large gathering somewhere, plane being in the paint shop rolling out tomorrow etc?

Yeah... youre right. Jetblue being as totally unprofitable as they are... only earling 750 million this year and forcasting 1+ billion dollar profits for ‘19 will certainly be sunk by flying an a321 over the Atlantic.
