Jetting with Joan

I just love Jet Blue.

As a marketing major, I always get a kick from their tagline “happy jetting”. It’s brilliant really, as I absolutely hate to fly, but is the means to the end of loving to travel and eventually arrive at my destination du jour.

So this morning I had very happy jet-bluing indeed. I had the honour of sitting with the queen of rock and roll this morning, while we both sipped Starbucks in row 3.
Joan Jett, who looked every bit as fab as she did on MTV when I sang along to her I Love Rock n Roll video, was also headed to JFK at 6 am, eyes half open and flipping through Jet Blue’s 33 in flight cable channels.

As we began take-off, she and her rock n roll partner/husband (?)leaned across the aisle and kissed, which I found totally endearing and an obvious “here’s to landing safely on the other end” habit of their hectic travel schedule. Note to self – be better wife and start similar, adorable, affectionate rituals with husband.

Then, proving old habits die hard, Joan and I both settled in to VH1, and enjoyed the smooth serenading of The King himself, dear Michael Jackson, via his life’s work video retrospective. How’s that for happy jetting?
