Blue Bravest is on its way UPDATE: photos!

What:   Our newest A320 livery in support of the FDNY Foundation is coming home to New York!

When:   Wednesday, October 23, 2013  approximately 7:15 AM EST

Where:   Spot the plane as it makes a NYC fly by along the West side of Manhattan

Like all New Yorkers, we have a special place in our hearts for the brave men and women of the New York City Fire Department. In fact, many of them are family; around 250 of our crewmembers are former FDNY!

As a company, we are proud to support the FDNY Foundation - the official not-for-profit of the FDNY established to promote Fire Safety in New York City and the professional development, training, and education of members of the FDNY.

To honor these great men and women and our support for the FDNY Foundation, we’re introducing a beautiful new custom paint job on one of our A320s and will show it off by flying it along the West side of Manhattan Wednesday morning. We’re calling it “Blue Bravest” but the one thing we’re not doing is telling you what it looks like ahead of time! (update: Now we are!)

    Too early for me, I won’t be in the office by then! Do you think I’ll be able to see from Brooklyn on its way back?

    Thank you for not excluding Puerto Rico from your contest. When will the plane overfly Puerto Rico. You should do it on a weekend day looping around the whole island’s beaches.
