George Clooney as an airline reward?

I've been ignoring this as either too boring or too likely to be an April fool, but heck, here goes. Anyone fancy a few trips to Canada?


George Clooney as an airline reward?

Herald News Services April 11, 2012

Would you fly more often if your reward was a regular supply of socks or a leather vest autographed by George Clooney?

With demand for air travel rising, competition for passengers is heating up. One way airlines are trying to lure passengers is with tantalizing rewards offered through frequent-flyer programs.

Many of those rewards are, well, weird, according to a study by IdeaWorks, a Shorewood, Wis., airline consulting firm that studied more than 150 airline reward programs. The firm released a list last week of the top 40 "weird, wild and wonderful" rewards.

For example, passengers of AirBaltic who accumulate 13,754 airline points can trade the points in for a dog-sled adventure.

American Airlines passengers can trade in 14,700 points for a beer-tasting tour in Brussels.

With 21,000 points on Lufthansa, passengers can get a "sockscription" that includes a delivery of three pairs of socks immediately, followed by more four months and eight months later.

And if you want the leather vest signed by Clooney, the star of Ocean's Eleven and Up in the Air, you'll need to rack up 177,000 miles with Air Canada.

I wonder if they'll link these offers up with the
"date-flight" ideas. ??? Love7

Then if you don't find Mr Right, you can be "consoled" by
deliveries of socks, which can then be donated to our
resident sock-puppets Thumbs up!
George Clooney fan forever!
