Jetblue offers passengers a free trip, but there’s one big catch

Jet Blue

The decision of the destination had to be unanimous.

Turks and Caicos v.s. Costa Rica was the question...


In a promotion, hid as a social experiment, airline company JetBlue promised a flight full of passengers a FREE round-trip ticket to anywhere. BUT like any viral video of course there was a catch. 

Every single one of the 150 people on board had to agree on the one location. 

Over the louder speaker a crew member said,

“People everywhere are digging in and holding their ground, refusing to compromise. So, as a social experiment, we wanted to find out if real people on a JetBlue flight would have an easier time putting aside their differences and reaching across the aisle.”

The tongue-in-cheek commercial seems to be a commentary on the looming American election. The commercial ends with, “So what have we learned? If people compromise and work together, all parties can win"

Lesson noted JetBlue, duly noted.
