New York Jets fan David Baghdassarian had a simple request: change JetBlue to JetGreen for his trip home.
As you may know, JetBlue has had a New York Jets-themed plane since 2010 that it uses on random flights in and out of New York. Baghdassarian was planning a trip there, and thought he’d take a shot at requesting the special Jets plane. It didn’t take long for Baghdassarian’s tweet to make it up the chain of command. ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports the Twitter exchange:
“I was super excited,” Baghdassarian, a 40-year-old health care attorney, told ESPN.com. “I didn’t tell too many people because I didn’t want to jinx it.”
But when he checked in for his flight on Thursday, there was the Jets plane.
“We saw his tweet and it wasn’t hard to schedule the plane to fly him home,” JetBlue spokesman Morgan Johnston said. “Now we obviously can’t have our customers dictating their routes all the time, but when we can listen to our customers, react quickly and do something cool, we obviously make the effort to do so.”
Fun fact: JetBlue has more than 1.6 million followers. This is one reason why.
