Earlier this week JetBlue quietly reached out to police departments around the country. The airline was offering two confirmed seats to each department who wanted to have members attend the funeral of the NYPD officers murdered earlier in the week. It was a very generous offer and more than 600 seats were allocated to police officers to make the trip.
And, while many are sharing positive feedback on the gesture JetBlue made there are some not so happy. Some are, at least in theory, calling for a boycott of the airline over the gesture. There’s a whole story written about it which points to a Twitter hashtag where the movement is supposedly growing. And it seems that all it can do is grow, given that there are only a couple dozen tweets in the collection. And many are supporting the company. Not really much of a boycott effort there, really.

It’s not worth giving the haters the publicity that they haven’t been able to generate on their own for their odd boycott.
Not surprising considering the percentage of B6 have roots back to the NYPD.
Really. You’re writing about a tiny group of people. It’s hardly worth noting and let’s hope it stays that way.
What a bunch of idiots. I support NYPD, even though I got a ticket from them, and I support B6 for their support.
