April Fools on Jet Blue.By now, most people know to take any news release on April 1st with a healthy dose of skepticism, and a lot of fact-checking. This year, JetBlue is pulling a little April Fools’ joke, but with a happy ending. Free travel for anyone on the airline today with the first name of April.

In an announcement made this afternoon on their blog, the discount airline stated that anyone named April who is flying JetBlue today will receive a JetBlue credit equal to the amount of the fare that they paid for their flight. It is important to note that this offer only applies to people named April who are traveling today, not to reservations made today by people named April.

“April 1st isn’t always fun and games for everyone.” remarked April Dinwoodie, JetBlue’s Director of Media Relations. “For many of us, it represents an annual tradition of mockery. We’re thrilled to take a moment and do something for those customers that might not look forward to starting their month with a day of teasing.”

Most JetBlue travelers who qualify for this promotion will see the credit deposited into their JetBlue Travel Bank if they booked directly with JetBlue on their website or by calling the airline directly. Aprils who booked via other means will need to contact the airline by April 8th to arrange for their flight credit. Flight credits earned as part of this promotion are good for any JetBlue flight for one year.
