Many thanks to BAT readers who played along in our contest to win a private tour of Singapore Airlines’s big new A380 now landing at SFO. We designed the contest to help promote Singapore Air’s “pop-up” A380 flights to SFO and to grow The BAT by having contestants suggest subscribing to their friends, and we succeeded wildly on both fronts.
So, a big THANK YOU (mmmwah!) to our readers and to Singapore Airlines!
We are happy to announce that the winner of the contest (selected randomly from all those who participated) is David Zippin, a conservation biologist with ICF International, a large environmental consulting firm.
David lives in Berkeley and travels for business most frequently throughout the West Coast and to Washington, DC. But when it comes to traveling for fun, you’ll likely find him jetting off to remote regions of the world to scuba dive. He told The BAT that his dream trip on Singapore Airlines would be a round trip to Manado, in Sulawesi, Indonesia to scuba dive.
David has been a loyal reader of The BAT for about the last 6-8 months, having learned about it via links from our posts on SFgate. He’s never been on board an Airbus A380, and is looking forward to bringing three friends along for the private tour later this winter. Stay tuned for a BAT post (with pics!) of the grand tour!
By now you may have noticed that you are reading The BAT in a brand new format. We’ve been busily working on the re-design over the holidays and hope it exceeds your expectations. We are still in the “tinkering” stage, so please help us make The BAT even better by offering your suggestions and comments on how we can accomplish that. Please post your suggestions below, or send an email to me.
Happy New Year! We are looking forward to a big 2013 for The BAT and look forward to bringing Bay Area Travelers all the news and information they need to make their trips great. Cheers.
Even if you were not the lucky winner of our contest, could you please continue to refer your friends and colleagues to The BAT? Word-of-mouth recommendation is the only way we can grow, and we appreciate your help!
