Crying babies are the biggest cliché in why flying is the worst, but leave it to JetBlue to somehow to convince passengers to cheer and smile every time a baby cries. No, that probably doesn't make a ton of sense, but that's why there's a video to explain.
With Mother's Day just around the corner (here's your reminder), JetBlue decided to change the way passengers on flight 213 from New York to Long Beach felt about that usually migraine-inducing baby cry. On this special flight, any time a baby started crying, everyone got a 25% discount on their next flight. And when those tears were turned into cash, the mood totally changed.
Passengers actually started clapping and cheering each time a new baby began sobbing, which sounds really mean, taken out of context. Four babies ended up crying, meaning everyone got 100% off their next flight. The flyers were obviously ecstatic about getting a completely free flight, and thus thankful to the little bundles of sobbing joy.
OK, let's make this a thing on every flight, please?
