What are you doing the weekend of October 24th? Any interest in Paris? Maybe for free?
Good, because AirFrance is sending two winners (each with a guest) on a whirlwind weekend romp in the City of Lights, from Oct. 24 to Oct. 27, as part of its Instant Takeoff contest.
And we're not talking about just airfares, either. Oh no. In addition to the flights, AF's also throwing down for a two-night stay at Pullman Montparnasse Hotel, tickets to the Louvre, and lunch at the swanky Bistro Allard -- all worth a grand total of $5,805!
But wait, not so fast. Unfortunately, here's where things get slightly disingenuous, at least for folks who don't live in/around New York City. The first 200 people to sign up will be emailed on October 23 (yes, the day before the trip) and invited to an exclusive event in Manhattan the following day at 4pm. It's at that event where the winners (who are selected at random) will be announced, and promptly whisked to JFK Airport, en route to Paris. WTF AirFrance? Thanks for nothing.
That said, if you do live close by and want to go, you'll need to do two things: 1) dig your passport out of the desk drawer to make sure it's valid; and 2) enter the contest/provide your details here BEFORE Oct. 24. Got that? Before next week.
And good luck -- here's hoping you don't have a sad ride home on the L train, all dressed up in your breton stripes.
