Announcing the City or Sea winner

February 7, 2013 by Flight Centre UK

The sparkle of city lights or the hypnotising calm blue ocean? A Manhattan in Manhattan or a piña colada beneath palm trees? These are the big questions we posed throughout January when we asked you which you preferred – City or Sea?

And we weren’t being coy – we had two British Airways flights to give away to the destination of your choice – be it New York (for city slickers) or the Maldives (for beach bums). All you had to do to be in the draw was let us know your choice.

City or Sea?

And let us know you did – thousands of entries streamed in hoping for a chance to win. When we hit 2,500 entries, we threw in a £500 travel voucher towards accommodation. And the entries kept coming.

Barely a palm-frond separated the two destinations in the end, but by the hair of a coconut husk, SEA took away the most entries.

And so, the lucky winner who selected SEA wins return British Airways flights for two to the Maldives, plus a £500 travel voucher for accommodation too.

So, I hear you cry, who wins?!

The City or Sea competition winner is…

City or Sea

Congratulations Vera! You and a lucky friend are off to enjoy the SEA just as it was intended – from a hammock on a Maldives beach, cocktail in hand. We’ll be in touch with details for claiming your prize.
