A good-looking terminal for good-looking crew

We’re still on a high from yesterday’s party, having a blast reading all the accounts of the action in the blogosphere. My personal fav comes from our friends over at Jaunted. They described the party as “one hell of a heartfelt hoedown,” and I can’t think of a better way to sum up the emotion […]

The next day…JetBlue and T5 at NASDAQ

A bunch of us were over at NASDAQ with Dave Barger to ring the opening bell and officially open the stock exchange in celebration of our new home at T5. Thanks […]

and the special guest is… Estelle! – 6:46 p.m.

She really rocked the house and pulled in a crowd! You could feel the excitement in the air! Crewmembers were surprised, tapping their feet to the beat! It was awesome to see Estelle pull some flight attendants onto the stage to dance with her!

T5 of the past and the future – 6:15 p.m.

JFK T5 is synonymous with famed airline TWA. Although we do not inhabit the airline’s old Eero Saarinen-designed Flight Center, our new terminal draws its inspiration as an aviation icon from it. A bunch of JetBlue Crewmembers who are ex-TWA employees just posed for this shot to celebrate their old and new home: Among the […]

Our three partner airlines pulled out all the stops today at T5…Aer Lingus brought a “Riverdance”-style step-dancing troupe into their area of the expo (thanks to the T5 team for laying down a proper floor for them!): Meanwhile, there’s no shortage of fine wines over at Lufthansa‘s booth, which also features their comfy J-class seats […]

The main act is just moments away! – 5:59 p.m.

We already had the amazing Rockettes! Now were getting all Jazzed up by the Matt Geraghty Project but has anyone guessed who the main act is going to be? I’m sure whoever it is will be able to steal the attention of the entire partying mass here at T5.
