As you may remember, The TICKET had a new reader promotion several months ago where we asked readers to introduce us to their social networks. With your help, the promotion brought us about 200 new readers! Those who participated were signed up for a sweepstakes drawing.
Do you remember the prize? We gave away FOUR free round trip business class tickets compliments of AirTran.
So without further ado, allow us to introduce the lucky winners! (I asked each to send us a little info about themselves to share with other TICKET readers.)
Clare Millians: Oh my gosh! I am thrilled to win the contest. I can’t believe I won. You have made my day. I am retired. I was a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines and then worked as a corporate sales manager for The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead. My husband and I decided it was time to travel, so off we went for 7 years. We still travel, but mostly in the U.S. these days. We are sneaking over to Vancouver later this month though. I plan to use the prize to fly to SEA to see my niece and her family. We love AirTran because of their prices, keeping the fares from ATL competitive and they don’t fly regional jets. The service is very good and they are flexible with changing dates of travel. I only wish they went to more places out of ATL. We have only flown AirTran’s business class once from ATL to SEA and back and it was great. I enjoy reading your column on a regular basis. (The photo was taken in Alesund, Norway last summer. It is called, “the prettiest town in Norway”, and I have to agree.)
Ann Larson: This is awesome and I am delighted!! I am an Atlanta-based tour operator and am still jet lagging from dodging volcano ash- having returned yesterday from a fabulous AMA Waterways riverboat cruise/tour with 26 of my “Happy Campers” (travelers) doing the Danube River from Budapest to Prague and everything in between! What a great treat to win this. I will use my AirTran ticket to do a site inspection in the West for something special to put into my 2011 agenda of great tours!! I love and appreciate Air Tran– the best thing that has happened to Atlanta. I travel about 50,000 to 60,000 miles a year- much more in the past. (Photo is from Mykonos, Greece.)
John Penninger: AWESOME! You’re serious, right? Where is Ed McMahon? That is so cool…Thank you so much…I feel like I need to make an acceptance speech. As far as the number of miles I travel per year, it’s definitely down for this Million Miler. I haven’t flown business class on AirTran before, but I just flew Business Elite on Delta for the first time and it rocked! Thanks again for the AirTran ticket — it will definitely come in handy– working in the nonprofit world has its rewards, but big money certainly isn’t one of them. 🙂
