JetBlue Airways Corporation voiced its opinion on Congress and campaigns through a social experiment on Monday. The airline company released the video , “Reach Across the Aisle,” to show the country doesn’t have to be partisan.
Following a montage of images showing partisan battles, JetBlue challenged the 150 passengers on a domestic flight to work together and compromise. Their test is if the entire plane can unanimously decide on a destination, everyone gets a round trip ticket to that destination. “You guys are part of something historic tonight,” the narrator said. One side of the plane was given a red voting paddle, the other side, a blue one and everyone was given a pamphlet of all their possible destinations.
The group first needed to have a majority vote to travel domestically or internationally. Once internationally won the majority, all 150 people had to settle on a location.
