JetBlue Celebrates 10th Anniversary

US LOW-COST carrier JetBlue Airways has celebrated its 10th anniversary with a specially painted Airbus A320, featuring a ‘10-themed’ livery to signify the carrier’s entry into its second decade.  “We created a customer service company that happens to fly airplanes,” said Dave Barger, JetBlue’s CEO.  “Since 2000, we have succeeded in building a new airline category that focuses on friendly service, free snacks and drinks, comfortable leather seating and complimentary satellite radio and live TV on personal seatback screens.”
In addition to revealing the new livery, the carrier also announced its Crewmember Tailfin Design Contest winner − the design of new colours for the fins of its aircraft.  The winning design − ‘Building Blocks’ − was chosen from among the top five finalists by public voting between December 8, 2009 and January 31, 2010.  After more than 30,000 votes, the winning design for an A320 aircraft was selected and with 30% of the votes submitted.
