BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — JetBlue realizes that flying with a baby can be stressful, not only to parents, but to others around them.

Instead of complaints or frustration, the airline gave people a reason to smile, and even applaud when babies cried on a recent flight from New York to Long Beach, California.

In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday, JetBlue told passengers on a particular flight that whenever a baby cried, they would receive 25% off of their next ticket.

After four babies ended up crying, each passenger earned a free round trip flight, courtesy of JetBlue.

See JetBlue’s video of the flight, and their message honoring and encouraging mothers in the video below:
