Earlier this month we asked for your help in working with an airline on a research piece which we linked to a competition.
The airline was interested in what airline you would fly with – in economy – if price was not an issue and airline miles or elite status benefits were not an issue. In order to get a genuine result the prize was two economy flights to New York on the carrier the winner had said was their favourite.
We can now announce the winner.
Nick G. and a friend will fly to New York on his choice of preferred carrier, Virgin Atlantic. Well done Nick.
We are not going to say if Virgin was the airline who sponsored the competition or not, as we might be doing something similar (but bigger and better) in the near future given the fantastic response we had.
