Frontier Airlines is offering free flights for people with the last name “Green” or “Greene.”
The Colorado airline says it operates “America’s greenest flight” and is giving away flights—up to $400 in value—for the promotion of Green Week, the company’s eco-friendly initiative.
We are celebrating our green efforts with the start of Green Week! To kick off, we have a special flight from @DENAirport to @GSPAirport, 7 days of giveaways and if your last name is Green you have the chance to fly for free on 8/13! https://t.co/gQ7h56XdN2 pic.twitter.com/coiZFwDWHX

“Our fleet’s fuel efficiency is unmatched by other U.S. airlines and allows Frontier to deliver not only the lowest fares but the most sustainable approach to flying,” President and CEO Barry Biffle said in a statement.
The airline says customer response has been positive.
“We’re very excited to share our green message with everyone,” said Zach Kramer, a Frontier Airline spokesman, adding that many people are tagging friends with those names. “I was surprised how many people have the last name Green.”
Passengers must book a flight on FlyFrontier.com, must depart on Tuesday and return by August 20, and must legally have the last name Green or Greene.
JetBlue CEO Collecting Garbage
JetBlue CEO, Robin Hayes was spotted collecting garbage on an economy class flight on April 5, in an act that won him many admirers. The airline executive also took to the intercom to award random passengers free tickets.
“It was a fun experience for everyone on the flight,” JetBlue passenger Joe Chase told Fox News. “Unfortunately I didn’t win a free ticket but I gained a new respect for JetBlue and will definitely be flying them again!”

Hayes was on a flight between Washington and Boston and a JetBlue representative told FoxNews that it was not the first time for the CEO to do such a thing and that it was a common occurrence.
Chase who works with Lake Street Advisors shared a picture of Hayes at the intercom on his LinkedIn with a caption that said, “CEO Robin Hayes got on the mic on my flight today to give away a couple (of) tickets to random passengers by playing “seat bingo.” When returning to his seat (flying economy) he walked down the aisle of the plane collecting trash from passengers. No job is below the CEO!”
LinkedIn users applauded Hayes for his leadership and for putting himself in his guest’s shoes.
“Being humble is (an) important part of being CEO. He is also putting himself in his Guest Shoes and his Customers shoes at the same time. Great way to figure out how his business is doing,” commented Khalil Harazin.
When it comes to company culture, @JetBlue knows how to “get it right” with employees and customers. Joining Deidre & JG on @GutwiZdom this week is CEO Robin Hayes who’s filled with ‘wiZdoms’ to learn and live by! Tune in tomorrow at 7 p.m. pic.twitter.com/dy6wIbmlyw
