JetBlue helps with your economic blues …

This one nearly had me in stitches and was too much to pass up.

Thrift airline JetBlue recently launched a new ad campaign which is cheekily targeted at all the formerly high-flying corporate fat cats in the finance and business worlds who are either out of a job or on reduced pay due to economic stress.

From their website:


Welcome Aboard!

We understand it’s not easy being a high flyer these days. The CFO is picking apart your expense reports. Congress is mad about your bonus. And you can’t even hop on a private jet to the Cayman Islands without freaking out the shareholders.

But even this economic cloud has a silver lining… actually more of a bluish lining. Because now you get to try JetBlue.

Jetting on JetBlue is a lot like on your private jet with a few basic differences. Let us walk you through the features.

The Best Seat in Coach

JetBlue gives you more legroom in coach than any other U.S. airline1. And all our seats are leather, just like you’re used to. In fact, because our seats don’t come with a whole bunch of media scrutiny and public outcry, we think they’re actually more comfortable than a private jet. Take a tour of our aircraft

Dozens of Alternatives to Cable Business News

Every seat on JetBlue has 36 channels of free DIRECTV®2. That’s lots of channels of glorious live entertainment and a few business news channels that can be complete bummers. But fret not. Nobody will blame you if you just want to watch kittens on Animal Planet. Browse our channel line-up

All the Free Snacks You Can Eat

On JetBlue, we give you unlimited snacks and sodas for free. We want to repeat that.  FREE.  Our blue potato chips are not a government bailout and there are no strings attached. See a menu of our free snacks

Jetting to the Business Capitals of the World

JetBlue offers service to many of the places where you need to conduct business. Places like Bermuda, The Bahamas, St. Maarten, Aruba and West Palm Beach. And if the Board forces you to go places like Boston, New York or Los Angeles, we can do that too. Peruse our route map

Fares That Won’t Give the CFO a Conniption

JetBlue’s fares start at very low prices. Let’s just say, they’re way, way, way less than the $5300 an hour you used to pay for your private jet. Now, in exchange for these shareholder-friendly prices, you’ll have to share the plane with strangers. Just think of it as jetpooling, only we find the other people for you.
