Las Vegas Airport contest; Phoenix Airport thank-you

Here’s another reason to pay attention to airports: you could win a free trip. Or at least some free popcorn

Oakland International Airport just announced the winning photos in its What You Do With The Extra Hour Is Up To You photo contest. Three winners won vacations just for sending in photos depicting how they’d spend the extra time they supposedly got by choosing OAK over other airports.

You missed that contest, but to celebrate four years of Korean Air service from McCarran International Airport to Incheon Airport in Seoul, Korea, there’s a contest to give away two sets of round-trip tickets from Las Vegas to Seoul.

The airport’s mascot, Amelia the Airplane, and Paradise Bakery’s giant cookie mascot will be on hand to greet travelers and pose for photos.  And many of the shops, restaurants and rental car outlets will be handing out small gifts ranging from stickers, magnets and beanie babies to food samples and bags of popcorn.
