At the beginning of the New Year, Lufthansa launched an exciting competition for children who enjoy flying. The prizes for the winning child involved stepping into the shoes of a member of the cabin crew aboard a Lufthansa flight and making an announcement live on board. On this basis the airline had started up a family competition where the child with the most imaginative announcement could win a flight within Europe for themselves and two accompanying adults. In a preliminary selection a panel of judges consisting of Lufthansa experts selected the 15 best announcements.
Kids from across the world had entered some of the most creatively thought of announcements for this and to our great pleasure, two kids from India, Sashreeka, 8, from New Delhi and Yashas, 8, from Mumbai have been selected from amongst 250 registrations and 63 clips in nine countries. In fact, the contest gained much traction globally with an astounding 22,000 page views on the contests webpage.
The winning clip is yet to be determined after an online public vote, but it is definitely a pleasant surprise to see such enthusiasm and participation from India. After the winner’s announcement, the new “crew member” will make their announcement live on board a flight with their parents to a European destination of choice.
