Traditionally when someone buys a new home, they lay out the brie and Chardonnay and invite people over so they can show off their new abode. The party is nice and hopefully nobody spills wine on the carpet or peeks in your medicine cabinet. And that’s about the end of the story. But what to do if you’ve just built a new 635,000-square-foot home to the tune of $800 million? Better buy more brie, because that’s got to be one hell of a party.
On Monday, September 22, JetBlue will be celebrating its new digs at JFK’s brand-spanking-new Terminal 5 (T5). This tri-level terminal has 26 gates across three concourses. And since it was designed with customer comfort and efficiency in mind, smack in the middle is a 55,000-square-foot central retail and concession marketplace. Sounds pretty posh, right? Well wait ‘til you hear about the housewarming celebration! JetBlue is so excited about its new domicile that it has invited a world-famous New York City dance troupe to perform the ribbon cutting, a famous pop singer to serenade guests, and T5 restaurant chefs to give cooking demonstrations. Guests can also get ready to discuss their favorite New York City factoids with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the best things about pink beaches with Premier of Bermuda Ewart Brown, and why in-flight movie selections keep travelers happy with JetBlue Airways CEO Dave Barger.
Surely JFK’s Terminal 5 sounds like an oasis to weary travelers and here at BookingBuddy HQ, we’re excited by the concept of “customer comfort and efficiency.” What do you think about this new mega-terminal? Leave a comment below and let us know.
