JetBlue conducts in-flight social experiment for free trip

News

NBC News – At a time in politics where it seems no one can agree on anything, JetBlue conducted a social experiment on a recent flight, offering all 150 passengers a free round-trip ticket for a future flight to anywhere in the world the airline flies, but with one catch.

Passengers onboard had to work together and compromise to unanimously agree on one destination by the end of the flight.

If there wasn’t a unanimous decision, they wouldn’t get the free trip.

Using red and blue paddles, they narrowed down their options, chose an international destination over a domestic one and it came down to two options: Turks and Caicos or Costa Rica.

Eventually, the passengers all voted for Costa Rica.

JetBlue conducted the experience due to “rancor and division in Washington.”
