JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) is offering angry citizens whose preferred presidential candidate loses this November a (temporary) way out of the country: they’re giving away free flights to a select number of those supporters.
The airline announced that it will be giving away 2,012 seats — or 1,006 round trip flights — for customers whose candidate doesn’t get elected president. Travelers just have to visit a website JetBlue set up for the promotion, register who they want to win the election, and select a destination among the various international destinations it services.
These include Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, and several Caribbean islands. Winners will be selected among those who supported the losing candidate.
The flight is round-trip, unfortunately, for those truly wishing to leave the United States, and it does not include taxes, fees, or a hotel in the destination of choice.
