Sigh.... Jetblue passenger jet low altitude flyover above Manhattan right now

Jetblue will salute healthcare workers and first responders in the Big Apple with a low altitude flyover above New York City. The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds were one thing, but this? This is beyond idiotic.

Sigh...

I can’t think of a worse idea.

Passenger jets flying low over NYC.
Awesome.
I'm sure that imagery will stir up exactly the emotions Jet Blue is hoping for.

Why isnt it?

JB is a private corporation designed to make money for its shareholders in any way it can.

Its now using this "flyby" to *advertise* itself as a company that cares, with some free advertising.

But "caring" is not their goal, its making money.

Not to mention passenger jets over NY. stupid...

They do dumb stuff for publicity. Last year (IIRC) they screwed with the iconic Pepsi sign in LIC: they attached their logo to it. It was there for weeks. I believe the sign is landmarked, and regardless of what we NYCers think of Pepsi the beverage, we like our big Pepsi sign from the old bottling plant on the East River. The photo is from 2010; lots of buildings behind it now. The Jet Blue crap grafted onto it looked ridiculous.

How or why would the FAA allow any passenger airliner to do this?

I could tell you but then this topic would get moved to the other side.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Maybe if they used two 767's, one in American Airlines colors, the other in Untied Airlines colors, it would make the flyover even more memorable.

I was called back to the hospital (we saw 230+ patients that day). It was surreal. We had nurses coming back to the ED to tell us that the first tower collapsed, then the second tower. I get home later that night to find out that my neighbor died (of course it took several days to confirm this--in the end, there was never an official ending because he had no remains).

I'm still sore about the attacks.



All I ever really needed to know, I learned from watching Star Trek.
