In a surprise move Jet Blue has concluded a secret purchase of 6 new AirBus 4380 MFBP aircraft to be delivered prior to the 2008 winter season. Inside sources have detailed Jet Blues' proposed use of the new monster aircraft.
After securing a contract with the Fox News Network to have the new aircraft repainted and interior modifications done as part of Fox's new "Pimp my Airline" reality series Jet Blue will replace its' fleet of commuter planes handling the eastern seaboard just in time for the onslaught of winter in 2008.
After this last winter's disastrous handling of delayed flights and trapped customers, Blue believes that having the ability to contain 500-750 passengers and crew on a single plane which has been re-designed to become a "party barge" at the drop of a attendants mini skirt will go a long way towards removing the stigma laid on it by last years lack of planning.
With the party barge redesign; additional "sleeping" berths, Jacuzzi bathrooms, slot machines, and "massage parlors" added into the upper level Blue figures they will have full planes whenever the weather forecast dooms other airlines to cancel flights just on the outside chance they will have to park on the tarmac for a day or so.
Huge Hefner, acting in an advisory capacity, has pronounced the new layout as one hot swingers pad and has booked a seat on the so called "maiden" flight of the new configuration scheduled for Labor Day.
In a creative cost cutting measure Blue has contacted with "Hooters" parent company Hooters of America Inc. for the attendant staff on the aircraft. Whenever the Air Bus moves into "party" mode, the FAA designation of the aircraft will transfer to the standard Hot38D configuration and personnel costs will be assumed by Hooters. This will be a perfect tie in with the Hooters Air Line operating between the US and the Caribbean Islands and is heralded by both parties as a win win win win situation.
