(Please let me know if you discover other airlines doing the same.)

And, in addition to some special events and in-store sales, the Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops at Philadelphia Airport is running a Facebook Friday contest . Answer some trivia questions to be entered in a contest for fun prizes.
