JetBlue Offered Free Flights When Babies Cried on Flight

When my youngest was just a few months old, I took him on a flight to New Hampshire. I was terrified.

How would he behave? Would he scream during the entire flight? What would my fellow passengers think?

I asked for advice from my audience to help me prepare. I even wrote a post about it.

It turned out that the experience wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It wasn’t at all easy, but doing it absolutely boosted my confidence level for traveling more in the future. Now that my son is 8 years old, he’s quite comfortable with planes and I owe it all to getting him started early.

In honor of Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, JetBlue has created a video that embraces the fears that moms of little ones have. Instead of shaming these moms and their babies, JetBlue brought humanity back to air travel by turning tears into cheers. This experience was captured on video and I’m excited to share it with you today! Check it out below.

JetBlue is dedicated to providing amazing flight experiences for its customers, so it’s no surprise that they turned a potential negative situation into a celebration for all passengers. What a neat way to bring the whole flight together and set the mom’s minds at ease while 35,000 feet in the air. I absolutely love this idea.
