In honor of American Airlines unveiling the first of its new fleet of domestic A319′s at Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW) Airport, our Thursday Giveaway last week was a $200 American Airlines voucher to use on any AA flight – but hopefully one on one of these new planes, which go into service next month.
To enter the contest, all you had to do was leave a comment below telling me which American Airlines-operated route you’d use your voucher to fly and why by yesterday at 5:00pm ET.
Well, it seems like a lot of readers want to test out the new A319’s for themselves since we got over 1,100 entries! It was hard to choose from among them with so many great stories and great reasons to travel, but our randomly selected winner is Bubbe who wrote the following:
“Pittsburgh to Santiago, Chile! It’s not a sob story – it’s a delightfully happy story. My daughter and son-in-law live in Santiago and they welcomed my first grandchild into the world on July 10th. I would go visit baby Alison and my kids One cannot put a price on hugs and kisses from a grandmother!”
Sounds like that $200 will be put to good use – and I had a great time in Santiago this spring myself when I visited with my mother – so we’ll be in touch to get you the voucher, and hope you’ll let us know how the trip goes.
Thanks to all who entered the giveaway, and stay tuned for this week’s contest, which we’ll announce on Thursday – and be sure to check back every week (if not every day!) for our Thursday Giveaway posts since we have great prizes to hand out and lots of eager readers who can make the most of them.
