That's pretty nice. I find it interesting that they are retaining a pic of the National Airlines logo.

I think it must be a tribute to our beginnings at T6, the original National Airlines "Sundrome" terminal...

looks like they're trying to copy Bloomberg but fall up way short.
still, not too bad of a place.

Kudos to JetBlue for honoring airline history, when they found the old NA Sun King logo. That could have gone to the trash or recycle pile. But someone noticed and made sure it found a proper home.

From my understanding, it was recovered during the demolition of T6.

It's impossible not to notice the extensive use of the color blue  

In my opinion the old National Airlines logo was one of the best airline logos of all. Nice job of B6 to salvage it.

The lights are really intense and are way too bright for me personally, but I suppose you have to get work done somehow. In spite of that, the place does have a crisp look to it. It goes without saying that a lot of gay boys appear to work for JetBlue. Must be a fun environment.

What about them? Can you really look at someone and tell if they are gay or not? That is some super power you have there.

OK, got misty-eyed at the old NA logo, but... This must have been quite the capital expenditure, eh?

Seriously? Probably not any more than any other airline. But we *are* everywhere. And not all of us are slim young things....and CERTAINLY not all of us have the "gay design gene!"

And to my Blue Bros.....congrats! Looks like a fantastic new home for you. Has a very definite look of the Space Station scenes from the old Kubrick classic movie "2001." Enjoy, be happy, and we'll see you out in the marketplace!

"What about them? Can you really look at someone and tell if they are gay or not? That is some super power you have there."

Actually, yes. As a gay man, you can do that. It is called gaydar and it is why we rarely find ourselves accidentally making a move on a straight guy.

That said, let's move onto JetBlue's HQ.

Looks like an awesome place.

Now if they can only get the giant sign approved by the community board...they're in!

My drinking adventures are open to all. I also recognize some people from the Forest Hills & 75th Ave. subway stops.

For sure .... Queens Plaza could use a little love and spicing up ... this is a great step towards making that happen.

If I make a major move in the city to another neighborhood altogether, Long Island City is near the top of the list.

I love it!! Guilty of that latter here myself. We "normal" gays just fly under the radar! lol

I'm going to miss my co-workers and friends that are moving up there next week from here, but am very excited that they are moving into such nice surroundings. B6 put a lot of thought and effort into the design of this place, and I think it fits their culture well. Me? I need to be around my airplanes or else I become a raging bitch LOL!

Quoting jfklganyc (Reply 18):

IIRC, that was part of "the deal" that was made in keeping B6's headquarters in NYC, so I am sure that will get approved sometime in the near future.

It sure will. It was one of the main reasons for them staying from what I heard. But this is NYC, so they are going through the motions (I mean approval process)

If it weren't for the gays the airline industry would shut down overnight...
