Big news out of the aviation world today as Jet Blue and the Red Sox unleashed a new plane that’ll be flying out of Boston Logan and is painted with the Red Sox logo on the tail. Yes, customers were given those jerseys you see and were promptly asked to wear it or they’d be shot by an air marshal. No seriously, they were allowed to keep the jersey and then charged $25 to stow it in the carry-on bin.
Have you ever based a travel decision on the paint scheme of an airplane? Of course fans would if they knew the scheme when ordering flights via Orbitz or Kayak. Would you take the 9:45 instead of the 7:05 if the later flight was painted with the Red Sox logo? Of course we wouldn’t but there are freaks out there who would for the novelty.
Especially if we get a free jersey. Would totally make up for the $50 bag charge. Kinda break even.
