Lets call a spade a spade: Babies often ruin the flying experience for everyone on board.
Some kids simply can't handle the pressure and freak out the entire flight. JetBlue understands many of their passengers woes, and on April 14, the airline offered a group of passengers on a flight from JFK to Long Beach, California the chance to win a free flight if any of the five babies on the plane started to cry during the trip.
Elizabeth Windram, JetBlue’s director of brand management and advertising (and a mother of a toddler), said this about the company’s “FlyBabies” campaign in a statement:
“People smile at babies everywhere, except on planes. For Mother’s Day, we wanted to acknowledge how moms (indeed all parents and caregivers) often feel stressed while traveling with children.”
Sadly, this was only a one day offer, but it may spring up again soon.
