NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Southwest (LUV) has flight attendants with a sense of humor, which is nice. But now JetBlue (JBLU) says it will have Taylor Swift perform a concert in its terminal, followed by a concert on a flight.
This all happens on Oct. 27. The country music heartthrob will launch her new album "Speak Now" in New York, go to Kennedy, give a concert there, and then fly to Los Angeles on a JetBlue flight, on which she'll perform. The reason she can do all this stuff in one day is because she is only 20. She probably still thinks flying is fun.
"We are constantly looking for ways to provide a one-of-a-kind travel experience," said Fiona Morrisson, director of brand management for JetBlue. The carrier also says that its customers in the terminal will get "an unexpected surprise."
That is, unless they read this story.Since 2009, JetBlue has offered in-terminal concerts by Dan Dyer, Nicole Atkins, American Princes, Alberta Cross, Justin Townes Earle, Sarah McLachlan and the rock band Daughtry. -- Written by Ted Reed in Charlotte, N.C. >to contact the writer of this article, click here: Ted Reed
