JetBlue Auctioning Flights, Vacations On eBay

JetBlue may be charging you for pillows and blankets, but it will be auctioning over 300 roundtrip tickets and some vacation packages this week. According to the AP, the opening bids start between 5 and 10 cents: "The flights are to more than 20 destinations, including four 'mystery' JetBlue Getaways Vacation packages to undisclosed locations." There are specific ranges of dates when people can travel and taxes and other fees are not included. A finance professor at Northeastern University, Henry Platt, thinks that the winning bids will probably end up being 85-90% of the flight or package's actual value. You can check out JetBlue's store on eBay here.
