The airline awarded the transatlantic flights to the first two people to buy the costly cocktail, aptly called “The Summer Friday", on the condition they leave the following morning. It took only 20 minutes for the drink to sell out.
A free transatlantic flight is probably the best hangover you can possibly hope for, after all.
According to a press release, the giveaway was part of Virgin Atlantic's initiative to get people to "do something more adventurous with their Summer Friday". A recent Harris Interactive survey discovered of the 12 percent of Americans who get Summer Fridays, approximately 59 percent still spend that time off in the office. Virgin's giveaway is trying to get people to do something a lot cooler.
