Travel Contest Alert: Win Tickets on a KLM Final Flight

October 21, 2014 at 4:09 PM | by | Comments (0)

When we talk about exciting, historical flights we typically talk about inaugurals. First flights are celebrated for a reason; they are a promise of travel to come and often a demonstration of the growth of a community or the prowess of new technology. Why, then, shouldn't we also celebrate the end of a service, after an airplane has delivered on its promise?

KLM agrees, and they're now holding a contest for one lucky AvGeek to join the final flight of their MD-11 on November 11.

KLM has been flying the three-holers since 1993, and will retire them from the fleet next month.

October 9, 2014 at 8:35 AM | by | Comments (0)

Have plans for tomorrow? If not, try to make your way out to Seattle, as Alaska Airlines is hosting a scavenger hunt in and around the city. We would probably play along just for some airline swag or a t-shirt, but what they’re handing out to the winner is even better. To celebrate their order of a whole bunch of brand new Boeing 737-900ERs they are offering up a chance to drive one—at least in the simulator.

The airline will be revealing clues on both Instagram and Twitter beginning at 6am—local time—this Friday. Your job will be to use the hints to find spots in and around Seattle, and if you’re the first to arrive at each location you might just score some time in the Boeing 737 flight simulator.

Private Flights and More: All the Travel Prizes for the 2014 McDonald's Monopoly Game

September 29, 2014 at 1:38 PM | by | Comments (0)

It's that time of the year again. We're not talking about fall foliage, or pumpkin spice lattes, or even Oktoberfest, but McDonald's Monopoly contest time, an annual event at the beginning of autumn designed to keep you ordering french fries and Big Macs throughout the season. The official game takes place from September 30 - October 27 2014.

Every year McDonald's Monopoly involves pulling game pieces off the packaging of select McDonald's menu items and, every year the top prize is a solid $1 million dollars. To be perfectly honest, we'd much rather have some of the lesser prizes, especially this year, what with a private jet trip involved.

Here are the 2014 McDonald's Monopoly prizes, in the travel category:

Travel Contest Alert: Write Aeroflot's New Jingle

September 4, 2014 at 9:55 AM | by | Comments (0)

Here’s a pretty unique travel contest; however, we kind of have our doubts regarding the potential payout—or if it would even truly happen. Aeroflot is looking for a new little song or jingle to represent their airline and brand, and they’re looking for you to create it.

The winner could score a cool 6 million rubles—that looks to be around $160,000—so start humming a clever tune. They want the name of the airline included within the song, so good luck rhyming things with Aeroflot. The composition should sell the benefits and brand, and otherwise be all about the awesomeness that is the airline.
