JetBlue Offered Passengers to Travel to Unknown Destination for Free

JetBlue airline offered 150 unsuspecting passengers a free trip, as long as they could agree on the destination.

150 random airplane passengers unanimously agreed to travel to Costa Rica taking part in GetBlue’s free promotion. In a social-experiment-slash-promotion, the popular American lowcost airlines suggested an airplane full of passengers a free round-trip ticket to somewhere on JetBlue’s route if they all could “reach across the aisle” to unanimously decide on a destination.

The lucky group of passengers travelling on flight 603 from Boston to Phoenix were more than just surprised when a stewardess appeared in the aisle and proposed to choose a destination.

“This was a bit of a play on the US presidential election in getting all the passengers to agree on one place just as they will have to agree on one candidate in the upcoming election,” writes Cost Rican Times.

The first round of “elections” was dedicated to determining whether to choose a national destination or an international one; the passangers chose to go international. From the second ballot, people began to argue among different international destinations to which JetBlue flies.

After a few minutes of hot debates, several passengers stepped out to propose vote for Costa Rica. At the end all chose all the passengers chose the same destination and the airline gave 150 free tickets to Costa Rica.

The action was conducted prior to the primary elections in the United States in which the Republican and Democratic candidates for the presidential process is defined.

“It’s time to decide,” said the stewardess on the video which was posted on Jet Blue’s Facebook page. However, it is unknown when the flight to Costa Rica will occur.

JetBlue is a low-cost airline that has been flying to Costa Rica since March 2009 when it launched a daily trip between Orlando and San Jose.

Speaking about the election 2016, Republican Donald Trump won in the Nevada caucuses, marking his third victory in contests to pick a candidate for November’s presidential election.

“As you know, Gitmo, we are keeping that open. We are going to load it up with bad dudes. We are going to load it up with a lot of bad dudes out there,” the billionaire told jubilant supporters.

“We are going to have our borders nice and strong. We are going to build the wall, you know that… And I have a lot of respect for Mexico. You just heard, we won Hispanics. But let me tell you, Mexico is going to pay for the wall.”

He went on, adding: “We’re winning, winning, winning the country, and soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning.”

Trump also celebrated getting the support of the “poorly educated” and Latinos. Some 45% of Nevada’s Republican voters of Latino origin backed the candidate, according to entrance polls.

With all votes counted, Donald Trump had 46% of the vote with his closest rival Marco Rubio getting 23%. Mr Rubio defended his second-place finish, calling it an “unusual year” and an “unusual process”.

“The vast, overwhelming majority of Republicans do not want Donald Trump to be our nominee. As long as there are four people running, dividing up the non-Trump vote, you’re going to get results like what you saw last night… so the sooner we can get this race narrowed down, I think the easier it’s going to be to stop Donald Trump and defeat him.”
