Special message: I learned via Twitter from Paul Thompson, a local photographer and blogger here in Dallas, that Boeing will be at the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum through October 5 with the 787 DreamLiner Flight Deck Demonstrator. If you live in the DFW area (or plan to be visiting) you might want to head over to Ft. Worth and see it (they’re closed Sunday). The link on the C.R. Smith website to the 787 DreamLiner Demonstrator exhibit doesn’t work, go here for more info.
A big thank you to AAflyer for alerting me via a comment that the second video in the American Airlines Commercial Scavenger Hunt contest has been posted to their Facebook page.
If you’re not already aware, this is a new contest to promote three new television commercials that American Airlines is introducing to highlight their effort to create a better travel experience for passengers. From the press release:
“Our objective with these ads is to convey the ongoing focus we have on our customers’ travel experience, including the many ways our most well-traveled customers stay connected throughout the travel process with American’s products and services,” said Rob Friedman, American’s Vice President – Marketing. “The ads are permeated with optimism to resemble the travel experiences of our most frequent customers, who are power users of cutting-edge tools like our mobile boarding pass, inflight Wi-Fi, flight status notification and Priority Access — all of which simplify travel from start to finish by continuously moving customers forward in their journey.”
The winner receives 200,000 AAdvantage Miles and a 1 year pass from Gogo Inflight Internet, and everyone will get 100 AAdvantage Miles just for entering.
To enter, just go to Facebook.com/aa, watch the videos, then answer three questions about each commercial. I assume that if you’ve already submitted three answers with the first video, that you only need supply answers to the second video. You won’t be asked to submit your AAdvantage number. American will contact you via your Facebook email address to supply you with a code for your 100 AAdvantage Miles. If you win, they’ll probably contact you the same way.
There will be 3 commercials total (the third video will be posted October 5), and each video will have 3 questions. To get earn an entry you will have to correctly answer 6 of the 9 total questions. You can gain a second entry by sharing the promotion with your Facebook friends. Go here to get started.
Here’s the second commercial: Scuba
These are the three questions:
1. Name three types of undersea life shown in the commercial.
2. Name three things that seem out-of-place underwater.
3. What is the gate number for the departing flight?
AAflyer suggested these answers, which seem pretty correct to me:
1. Fish, Turtles,
Stingray Manta Ray (see comments)
2. AA Priority Access Board And Departure/Arrival Board And Mobile Phone
