Yesterday Bill was up bright and early for a 7am ferry flight to Burbank. He can now say he’s flown from Long Beach to Burbank on an A320…. it’s only forty miles. The flight was a large part of a press conference announcing jetBlue as the official airline of Springfield: Home of the Simpsons.
All of the Simpson family were there to commemorate the aircraft named “Woo-Hoo JetBlue.” It includes the “official airline of Springfield” logo. Bill enjoyed getting some funny photos.
They had promotional Marge wigs.
Bill with Bart and Apu Nahasapeemapetilon… sort of
They had Buzz Cola, Squishies, and donuts with pink frosting and sprinkles… all from the show. Alas, no Duff Beer. Part of the movie promotions include a select number of 7-Eleven stores converting into Kwik-E-Marts with all of these products plus more. We’ll probably make a pilgrimage out to the one in Santa Monica sometime soon.
