There is perhaps no more dreary experience than the morning commute.
Thankfully, one airline turned that very thing into the most glorious thing ever when15 people tasked with commuting via New York’s Jamaica station discovered that JetBlue and the Jamaica Tourist Board had one tremendous giveaway planned.
As you will see in the following video, representatives asked commuters to consider trading in their train ticket for something a little more snazzy: a trip to Montego Bay.
The trips included hotel accommodations along with airfare out of New York City to the paradise that is Jamaica.
Here is how quickly things can change:
Of course, each person greets the Jamaica representatives with caution. The last thing you want to do on your commute is chat it up with a stranger—it’s the reason so many pamphlets go straight into the trash.
In this case, there was a huge reward for those who were willing to spend a moment hearing about the warmth that awaits those in Jamaica, but that leaves the rest of us to watch the video and merely shrug and think, that would be nice.
As JetBlue explains, you can experience a similar trip. While you will have to pony up cash for that opportunity, the airline is helping.
As it explains, “For a limited time, catch a #JetBlueFlashFares from New York (JFK) to Montego Bay with fares from $20 one-way.”
More information can be found at JetBlue’s Flash Fares page, or you can pore over details of a full trip at JetBlue Vacations.
