Last Chance for Those Named Sydney to Win Tickets to Australia
Earlier in 2017, United announced its plans to launch a new ultra-long-haul route between Houston (IAH) and Sydney (SYD). The new daily service begins on January 18, 2018 and will be the only nonstop service between the two cities. In anticipation of the inaugural flight, United is offering a contest for five US-based "Sydneys" to win a trip to their namesake city with one guest, as well as a five-night stay at The Westin Sydney and a $500 prepaid card.
If you're a Sydney — or a Sidney, Sidnie, Sidnee, Sidneigh, Sidni, Sydnee, Sydny, Sydni, Sidne, Cydney, Cidney, Cidnie, Cidnee, Cidneigh, Cidni, Cydnee, Cydny, Cydni or a Cydne — today is the last day to enter the contest.
The terms and conditions state that participants must have the first or last name of Sydney and must live in the US, though residents of Florida and New York are excluded. Australians, don't fret — the airline is offering the same contest for residents bearing the name "Houston" for the return flight on January 20.
Today is the last day to enter — winners will be picked on December 28, 2017. So all (American) Sydneys out there, you only have a couple hours left to enter to win what's sure to be a memorable trip Down Under.
In addition to Houston, United offers flights to SYD from both LAX and SFO, as well as from Melbourne (MEL) to LAX.
