JetBlue: Free flights for disgruntled voters

NEW YORK — In a marketing gimmick that piggybacks on next month's presidential election, JetBlue is offering a way for Americans to make good on threats to leave the country if "the other guy" wins.

The New York airline said Wednesday that it will give away 2012 seats, or 1,006 round-trip flights, for customers that come out on the losing end of the battle between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Travelers who visit jetblue.com/electionprotection and pick their choice for President will be entered into the contest to win a (temporary) escape outside the U.S. JetBlue's international routes include Mexico and the Caribbean.

The free flight would not include taxes, fees or a hotel.

  1. What they should offer is free one way tickets for those - of either party - threatening to leave the country if their candidate doesn't win.

    If their loyalty is so thin and their commitment to America so low that they would even make this statement, they don't deserve to be citizens.

    Don't let the jetway hit you in the post election.
