Jet Blue 20th Anniversary

Yesterday marked 20 years since the first JetBlue flight, which flew from New York to Florida on February 11, 2000. Passengers that flew the same route yesterday received breakfast treats and surprise giveaways.

Robin Hayes, chief executive officer of JetBlue, said in a statement: "No one believed that a start-up airline in 2000 could survive 20 months, much less 20 years. But JetBlue proved that taking care of people and bringing low fares to the market could not only be a viable business model but could also completely disrupt an industry.

"Others have tried to imitate JetBlue but no one has ever successfully copied our 23,000 crewmembers and the incredible culture that they've built."

Joanna Geraghty, president, and chief operating officer of JetBlue, told Travel + Leisure: "Twenty years ago, no one believed a start-up airline would survive, but thanks to our incredible crewmembers and customers, we proved the skeptics wrong.

"We want to celebrate this very special birthday with all of our customers who love the great service and low fares that make JetBlue different than every other airline."
