It’s No Joke. JetBlue Covers Flight Costs of April 1 Travelers Named April

JetBlue - Free Flights for AprilWhile brands like Google, BMW, Nissan and many others were celebrating April Fools Days with fake product announcements, JetBlue was keeping it real by offering a credit voucher equal to the cost of their flight to people (presumably women) with the first name April, who were flying April 1.

On the airline’s Blue Tales blog, the company’s Director of Media Relations April Dinwoodie (yes, April) explained:

“April 1st isn’t always fun and games for everyone. For many of us, it represents an annual tradition of mockery. We’re thrilled to take a moment and do something for those customers that might not look forward to starting their month with a day of teasing.”

JetBlue’s Election Protection – Win a Flight Out of the Country if Your Guy Loses

JetBlue - Election Protection

JetBlue has just launched Election Protection 2012, a solution for all the loud mouths who are quick to threaten to ‘leave the country’ if their candidate doesn’t win.

Starting October 3, participants can choose their candidate and one of the eligible destination that JetBlue flies. If your chosen candidate loses on November 6, your name will go into a draw to win 1 of 1,006 certificates for airfare from the US to one of the 13 eligible destinations in the Caribbean, Central America and Colombia. And yes, they were round-trip tickets, so you can fly home rested and relaxed after some quality time away from politics.

The data of both party choices and destination are tracked and displayed on the site at jetblueelectionprotection.com.

But remember my American friends, on November 6 get your butt out there and vote for real.
