I read a joke on another forum that they wanted to rename Canyon Blue (the one which made the successful emergency landing at LAX in Sept.) to "Blue My Tires"

I don't think that would go over too well.....

100% rumor. The rumor actually gained some steam and the company sent our a memo stating that they had no intention of renaming Canyon Blue. I've flown that aircraft several times and it still is a great bird to fly on. I had no reservations getting onboard when I saw her show up on my pairing.

Yes, I know it was 100% rumor...please read my post first. I said I read a joke ...I know it was nothing official. Just thought it was funny.

N536JB (Canyon Blue) is a great aircraft and was back up in service about 10 days after the incident back in Sept.

haha, Blue Balls. Don't know how an 80-year old grandmother would feel flying on a plane with a name like that!

How about Bling Bling Blue??

Yersterday, JFK-FLL, I flew on Out Of The Blue (I think it's one of their oldest ones and it still flies smoothly!)

It's amazing isn't it that a five-year old plane doesn't fall apart

That reminds me of flying from IND to DTW in November on a NW DC9-30. There were only two passengers on board and I had a chance to chat with the pilot. This specific a/c was buit in 1967. Even it flew smoothly!

BTW, although the only other passenger and I sat in FC, I would honestly say I prefer the service on a virtually full B6 flight. JetBlue is great.

A few more ideas for JetBlue's marketing

. The Blue Period
, which would be designed by Paloma Picasso (JetBlue's Unconditional guarantee of excellence)
Blue Man Group The name JetBlue could give its elite TrueBlue flyers (200 pts or more per year)
Blue in the Face JetBlue's commitment to keeping its customers informed of anything (as in, we'll make sure you stay informed until we're Blue in the Face).
Blue Fin (I have already suggested this one) the $5 drink coupon
BlueThrough
The name given to a quick connection

More Plane Names

Adding to my list, I flew Rhythm & Blues JFK-BOS (the 8AM flight is an A320). I returned on an E190, but didn't catch the name.

Also flew Betty Blue JFK-LAS.

Flew to New Orleans this weekend. Flights were great as always.

Outbound from JFK was one of the earlier ones, "Blue Skies"...the third plane in the fleet.

Return flight to JFK was "Ole Blue Eyes."

Post your plane names please!!

Northwest seems to have some antiques flying around. I had a flight on a DC-10 in 2002 and a DC-9 in 2003.

Back to Jet Blue airplane names -- does the name Canyon Blue have anything to do with Southwest changing its color scheme (Southwest's magazine describes the color that it is changing the top of its airplanes as Canyon Blue)? Song Sung Blue seems to be a reference to Delta's Song...

Canyon Blue entered the fleet back in May 2002, so I doubt it.

Song Sung Blue was the first A320 to wear the "bubbles/super-dots" tail design and it debuted in Jan. 2003 as a funny response to the launch of Delta's Song. There is a picture in Blue Streak with David Neeleman holding a bottle of spraying Coca Cola (From Delta's hometown, Atlanta) in front of that aircraft.
