JetBlue Lost the Deal for Virgin America, Giving Out Free Flights to Virgins

Alaska Airlines beat out JetBlue to buy Virgin America. That means JetBlue won’t build a big California presence out of Virgin’s San Francisco hub and Los Angeles operation.

But JetBlue still wants new customers in California, and in their home state of New York. They want Virgins.

Hey, JetBlue virgins in NY and CA! You may not know us, but we know you’ll love us. In fact, we’re so confident it’ll be love at first flight that we’re giving away 500 roundtrip flights to those who have never flown us before!

If you live in New York or California, and you’ve never flown JetBlue, enter by next Wednesday to win one of 500 free flights.

Terms and conditions:

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Sweepstakes starts on or about 5:00 PM ET on 4/6/16 and ends at 11:59 PM ET on 4/13/16. Sweepstakes open to legal residents of New York and California who are 18 years of age or older and have never traveled on a JetBlue Airways flight at the time of entry. Five Hundred (500) prizes, each valued at $299 will be awarded. Total Approximate Retail Value of all prizes: $149,500. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received. Void outside of California, New York and where prohibited. See Official Rules for complete details. Sponsor: JetBlue Airways Corporation. All rights reserved
