John John’s Board vs. JetBlue: Round 1

Photo by Surfrider Holland.

Around 19 hours ago, a social media coordinator @jetblue received a notification on their phone that pro surfer, @john_john_florence posted a picture about JetBlue. The post from John John had to do with his boards being broken when he flew the airline, and had nothing to do with their delicious snack offerings. It happened. It shouldn’t have happened. It sucks. But there is some good news out of all this… we learned that people have some sound advice and feedback for the New York-based airline.

In what is sure to be an #interesting next few days at JetBlue’s corporate offices, we’ll be waiting (and watching) for more opportunities for JJF super fans and anti-baggage fee advocates to wreak absolute havoc on the #4 ranked airline in rewards programs. Stay tuned.
