Last week, I wrote about jetBlue’s newest tail design, High Rise, as well as what I thought my top seven designs were. Little did I know that jetBlue has something even cooler up their sleeves, and this is officially my favorite jetBlue livery, hands down!

I first came across this new design on Twitter, thanks to the ever-awesome Twitter feed of Jason Rabinowitz:

That is sharp! Per jetBlue’s press release:
The see-through paint job draws on both the technical and fanciful aspects of air travel. Mechanical features like the nose gear, jet engine and yoke were among the more obvious design elements to include. But for the onboard features, JetBlue designers drew upon their own travel experiences, crewmember tales, and the airline’s loyal customers for inspiration, even creating fictional characters to compile a list of the items they might be traveling with. Plane spotters are encouraged to give the overhead bins, under-seat storage areas, and the luggage holds a closer look to see if they can spot the nearly 50 items these “Blueprint” customers are traveling with.
This reminds me of South African carrier Kulula’s blueprint-esque design “Flying 101”, which I also love:
Apparently, the design took two weeks to paint. Talk about detailed! This is also the first specialty design to appear on a jetBlue Embraer E190. Expect to catch a glimpse of this cool design wherever jetBlue flies their E190 fleet, starting today!
What do you think about jetBlue’s newest design?
