It’s been a slow week as far as AAdvantage offers go, it’s usually that way at the end of the month when offers expire and news ones haven’t been announced, but despite the lack of new AAdvantage offers, it’s been a busy week for contests. Here’s a new one from oneworld member and AAdvantage partner, Cathay Pacific.
The start of their new non-stop service from Chicago to Hong Kong is just over a month away and to promote the new route they’re offering a new Facebook contest with the winner receiving two round trip tickets to Hong Kong. This new promotion is a little more involved than your usual sweepstakes and in order to win you’ll have to tap your creative side:
Use your artistic talents for a chance to win 2 tickets to Hong Kong!
To celebrate our new nonstop service from Chicago to Hong Kong, we’re hosting a competition on Facebook to blend these two iconic cities into one. Blend the cities’ skylines, monuments or streets using photography, sculpture, illustrations or any other medium you would like – the options are as wide as your imagination.
Grand Prize: The winner will get 2 tickets to Hong Kong and a cultural Feng Shui architectural tour, courtesy of the Hong Kong Tourism Board. In addition, the winning entry will be featured on the Cathay Pacific Facebook fan page and will be on display at select airport locations.
Here’s the short description of how it works: create your work of art, submit it to their contest page on Facebook and let people vote on it. The ten entries with the greatest number of votes will then advance to a final round with the winner being selected by artist Maria Lobo. To read more visit the Cathay Pacific Facebook page.
On another topic, you’ve probably already read this, but if not, check out the Frequently Flying to see a vintage American Airlines’ 747-100 seatmap which includes dining table seating in First Class. Also, read this store from the View from the Wing blog about a possible oneworld MegaDO. If you’re not sure what a oneworld MegaDO is, think of it as AAdvantage camp/oneworld palooza.
Have a great weekend.
