Re: JetBlue New NYPD Livery

If you attend a parade in NYC, you see this flag quite often. Usually with the mounted unit, motorcycle unit, or nypd marching band. Along with the Emerald Society, these are widespread symbols of the NYPD. Now that I have seen the NYPD shield below the jetway line, I am 100% sure B6 did this to hon...

That is the NYPD flag. I personally think B6 (while a strong supporter of cops and nypd) is trying to walk a fine line here. Many of their pax are from NYC communities of color that may not be thrilled with the nypd. (A view I disagree with btw) This is a little less in your face than an NYPD shield...
