The rivalry between the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders is one of the oldest in the NFL. At JetBlue though, we’re all about bringing people together. So what do we do as the Official Airline of the New York Jets when the Jets face the Raiders? We have a little fun of course!
It started when Matt Higgins, the Jets’ Executive Vice President of Business Operations sent a tweet to our CEO Dave Barger:
Now as a round the clock airline with lots of moving parts, it takes a little bit of work to confirm a single plane on a route (so we won’t necessarily be able to make sure you have N534JB “Badda Bing Badda Blue” on your next flight) but Dave and our Chief Operating Officer Rob Maruster jumped into action.
And just like that, our own gang green, the Jets-themed A320 N746JB, affectionately referred to by many as “JetGreen” was winging Westward to support our team as they take on their rivals.
You can watch the Jets take on the Raiders Sunday, September 25; 4:05pm ET. Are you flying with us during game time? Don’t fret, you’ll still be able to stay up to date (without interruption!) with our DIRECTV!
