Night Ranger performed with JetBlue's runways and Los Angeles County as its backdrop. Additionally, fans paid homage to the '80s by showing up clad in their finest threads from the era. JetBlue representatives were on hand with great prizes such as travel certificates for the first 80 fans that showed up in '80s gear and a vacation package for the most original costume.Photos can be viewed at: http://blog.jetblue.com/?p=21990."JetBlue is already a musically inclined airline, so we are excited to present this unique salute to the '80s to our customers" said Jace Hieda, regional marketing manager, JetBlue.
