Rather than follow regular protocol this week where we post JetBlue or BlueCity pics from three finalists and put them to a public vote, we’ve decided to mix things up a bit. This week, we’re highlighting three from our ten most viewed images from our Flickr site.
Did you know that we have close to 13,000 images on our Flickr page with more than 200,000 views?
Next up in our Live From T5 Concert Series will be an exclusive, intimate concert by Columbia Records Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and record producer Raphael Saadiq on Friday, April 8. The Live from T5 concert with Raphael Saadiq will be the first in the series hosted on a Friday, much to the enjoyment of Customers starting their weekend traveling with us.
Raphael Saadiq, considered the standard bearer for “old school” R&B, is celebrating the classic sounds of the 60s and 70s soul with a futuristic twist on Stone Rollin’. Featuring ten new tracks, the album is the follow up to Saadiq’s 2008 solo album The Way I See It, which boasted four Billboard R&B chart singles and was nominated for three Grammy Awards including Best R&B Album. Now with this new collection, Saadiq nods to his heroes like Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Little Walter and Sly Stone, while merging his own contemporary sound, one born out of a combination of his recent touring experiences, as well as inspiration derived from indie acts that hold regular rotation in his iPod.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day, a public holiday celebrated in Ireland and in countries around the world commemorating the most commonly recognized patron saint of Ireland. A fun fact about the holiday is that the original color associated with St. Patrick was blue, but as time passed, more and more people started wearing green to celebrate and became the color we now associate with the holiday.

In addition, green beer will be available for purchase at T5′s New York Sports Grill, select restaurants will be offering Jameson drink specials, and Irish Fare including Corned Beef and Cabbage and Sheppard’s Pie will be served in the Food Court.

Some weeks have the distinctive feel of “beginning” or “end”; of triumph or defeat. This week in the airline industry, many companies announced their fourth quarter and annual earnings, letting the world know — and investors — what the next year will look and feel like.
