The launch event was all about taking a farcical look at the airline industry.  The evening was highlighted with a special screening of the '80s classic movie AIRPLANE! Featuring a live stage show with costumed performers; the audience was encouraged to dress up as their favorite AIRPLANE! cast member. Everyone received costumed props that were used during key scenes throughout the film or whenever they felt like it. There were balsa wood model airplanes flying through the air, woppie cushions making their unforgettable noise, glowing necklaces, barf bags, Kleenex, auto-pilots being tossed through the audience, all in all a really fun time was had by all. 

Flash cards for the audience to read out LOUD and with statements on what they should do

There were three categories for best costume: Most Authentic, Most Original and Dishonorable Mention. Winner of each category will be awarded one pair (2) of JetBlue tickets to anywhere JetBlue flies.
A Red Carpet Reception preceded the screening for JetBlue executives and talent, featuring JetBlue's BLUEBetty.
