JetBlue truly gets new respect from me. In a time of crisis, it maintains its corporate social responsibility. Can't say the same for the other degenerate airline services we've all come to dislike.
While Hurricane Irma is steaming its way toward the United States at a terrifying 200 mph, JetBlue is helping people escape its path as best as possible.
Via the company's website, the airline announced that it would cap outbound flights from Florida and other locations in an effort to help residents evacuate before the storm's arrival.
Business Insider reports on JetBlue's announcement as follows.
On Wednesday, the New York-based airline announced it had discounted the price of nonstop flights out of Florida to $99 including tax. Connecting flights out of Florida will cost a bit more, at $159.
Likewise, even when JetBlue's flights were canceled in Puerto Rico, they were responsible enough to drop its passengers off at a safer place, when no other accommodations were available.
Meanwhile, Delta and United Were Busy Financially Raping Evacuees
Mind you, this was the price of a one-way flight.
And how about this one-way from Twitter user Cory O'Connor?
Absolutely ludicrous, right?
If you're still in the path of Hurricane Irma and need to get out — and that's if there are any flights still available — JetBlue is willing to make it affordable for you.
