It’s Thursday – and that means it’s time for another reader giveaway! I’m at almost 33,000 Twitter followers (just about 300 left to go!), so for this week’s giveaway, I wanted to take it to Twitter and get people talking.

Since it’s Thursday, I thought it would be fun to do a Throwback Thursday post – #TBT for those of you in the Twittersphere (and Facebook and Instagram for that matter). I’m going to give away 10,000 Amex Membership Rewards points to one lucky winner.

All you have to do to enter is Tweet me with the hashtag #TBTTPG (so I can find your Tweets) by 5:00pm ET on Monday, January 27 telling me which defunct airline you’d bring back from the dead and why. You can only enter once, and you must be following me to be eligible to win. When all the entries have been received, Team TPG and I will select a winner at random who will receive 10,000 Amex points transferred to their Membership Rewards travel partner account (airline or hotel) of choice.

Maybe you want to experience the glory days of Pan Am or TWA, or check out those swingin’ Braniff flight attendants. Whatever it is, I want to hear about it – and visual aids are always a plus.

I'd revive Independence Air so I could get a $100 ticket back!

If I were entering, my Tweet would be: “I’d revive Independence Air so I could get a $100 ticket back! Was supposed to fly to DC in college but airline went bust #TBTTPG“.

Whatever your entry, try to include an explanation, and be sure to follow me and Tweet by the deadline. Good luck and happy Throwback Thursday!
