Lufthansa offers iPhone 4G loser free beer
Gray Powell invited to Munich to drown his sorrows
German airline Lufthansa has invited iPhone 4G loser Gray Powell to Munich to drown his sorrows after the poor chap apparently left the next manifestation of the Jesus Phone in the Gourmet Haus Staudt, a "German Specialty Store and Beer Garden" in Redwood City, California.
The airline's director of marketing and customer relations for the Americas, Nicola C Lange, posted the invite on Twitter. Lange sympathises with "how frustrating it can be to lose personal items, especially when it is such a unique item", and noting Powell's "passion for German beer and culture", offers to fly him Business Class to Munich. Here, she says, "you can literally pick up where you last left off".
According to CBS, Powell hasn't yet taken up the offer. Lufthansa spokesman Martin Riecken said: "We got some hints so far from people who know him but we haven't heard from him as well." Riecken assured Powell a "happy time" should he wish to put some distance between himself and the wrath of Jobs. ®
Not a fan, huh? After two weeks of drinking Pils in Berlin, I can't wait to get back to Munich for a decent Weissbier....
Hmmm.. Free beer in Business class, right? I bet they will search the aircraft business section very thoroughly after the flights....
Sounds more like he's just pulled!
<<--Paris would offer more than just a beer.
So, a free Business Class flight to Germany to drink free beer?
What could possibly be wrong with this? I would take such an offer up in a snap!
Full marks to Lufthansa
If only all work mistakes were punished in this way... :)
