JetBlue fills seats by offering student discounts on airfare

Pretty much everyone agrees that America's students are, financially speaking, some of the most screwed-over citizens we've got. Your average college student has no money, piles of debt, and these days, no real job prospects.

But they have JetBlue. The airline is now offering student discounts of 11% off all of its flights, anywhere, at any time. To qualify, you've got to have a valid ISIC, ITIC, or IYTC card (if you're a real student, you'll know what those are, or your administration will).
