Wow Air Is Offering Free Flights to Inspirational Women


 Some passengers have confused emergency exit door handles for
 handrails. 
 Others have been filmed slapping gate agents or calling other
 passengers names. 
 One man was photographed removing his pants, shoes, and socks
 on a flight. 
 Getting lost, 
 navigating language barriers, and 
 spending too much of a foreign currency are part of the
 experience of 
 being a tourist. But making a major mistake while flying can
 have consequences for everyone on board.
 First-time flyers, superstitious travelers, and passengers who
 have 
 simply reached the end of their rope have caused everything
 from flight delays to cancellations.
 Here are 12 times
 that passengers have reportedly caused trouble.
Air transport accounts for 2% of global carbon emissions.

Have a woman in your life that “wows” you? Well, now is a good time to show your appreciation — Wow Air is offering free flight vouchers to inspirational women for a new sweepstakes promotion.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Icelandic airline is urging people to share their stories about a woman that inspires them on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #wowwoman and tag @wowair. The winners will be reposted on the Wow social media pages on March 8 and awarded with two free round-trip vouchers to the inspirational woman’s Wow destination of her choice.

Some Wow Air destinations to pick from (aside from Reykjavik, of course) include major tourist cities from around the world such as Barcelona, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, Dublin, Tel Aviv, New York City and many more. Plus, it’s completely free — so nominees and nominators have nothing to lose. The competition deadline is Friday, March 8, at 11:59am UTC, and the voucher is valid for one year. Only US residents are eligible for the grand prize.

We wish you all good luck — and may the women who inspire you get the vacation they deserve.
