JetBlue: Free Flights for Disgruntled Voters

NEW YORK (AP) — In a marketing gimmick that piggybacks on next month's presidential election, JetBlue  (Nasdaq: JBLU  ) 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.

    To make good on that promise, it should be a one-way ticket. Cool promotion though.

    Sonething is wrong here - I only see two establishment's picks. Both support socialized medicine, both support Patriot act, both support the wars (except that one wants to spend more on wars as if we're not spending enough), both support entitlement programs. Someone close to jetblue please point that fact. Thank you.
