I was just finished talking about HOW HARD it must be for parents flying with babies in anything but private jets (ha!), when I saw a video from JetBlue.

Apparently, on a recent cross-country flight, JetBlue awarded passengers 25% off their next flight every time a baby cried. If four babies cried during the flight, every passenger on board would get a free flight. So, you can imagine that the reaction to a crying baby was totally flipped on its head.

Unfortunately, this was just a one-time thing to create a promotional video for Mother’s Day, so don’t start borrowing babies to take on your next trip just yet. The real point is, everybody is happier when new parents are supported and applauded even at 36,000 feet.
