The Power of One Infographic

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. ®
