ATTN Agents: Here’s how you can score yourself some amazing American Airlines prizes

Calling all agents! Want to win a free trip to L.A., a Polaroid camera, or Platinum Status on American Airlines?

Well, we know how.

In New Zealand, American Airlines, Discover Los Angeles, and LAX are giving away a massive prize pack for one lucky agent and a friend to go to L.A.

If you win, you’ll score:

  • Two return economy flights from Auckland to LA on American Airlines (fly between October 30 and November 2)
  • Three nights at The Garland for two people in a twin room for 30, 31 October, 1 November 2018
  • Two passes to Universal Studios Hollywood with Express Ride Pass and access to Halloween Horror Nights
  • Two one-day GO LA Attraction Passes
  • Two one-day Starline Tours Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour Tickets
  • Two passes to exclusive Halloween parties in L.A. (details to be announced on the night)

Making it a pretty excellent prize, if you ask us.

Between Friday September 28 and Thursday October 25, agents who issue tickets on American Airlines’ Auckland to Los Angeles service and complete training on L.A. Insider will be in with a chance to compete at American Airlines’ Hollywood Halloween Glam event on Friday October 26. The winner at the Hollywood Halloween Glam event will score the big prize!

There’ll be a shortlist announced October 26, and grand prize contestants will answer a series of American themed questions on the night, to decide the overall winner.

L.A. Insider is an online travel agent training portal from Discover Los Angeles and only takes 30 minutes to complete. Agents can access the training at http://insider.discoverlosangeles.com or by downloading the LA Insider App from the App store (iPhone & Android).

To be in the running, email your ticket numbers, date tickets were issued, passenger departure date and PNRs to nzsales.support@aa.com.

Tickets must be booked between September 28and October 25 on AA82 or AA83 flights.

Oh, and in case you hadn’t guessed, only New Zealand-based agents can enter this draw. Sorry Aussies!

But don’t worry, American Airlines haven’t forgotten about you Aussie agents!

The first 25 agents to sell five flights on the Sydney to Los Angeles route (AA72 or AA73) will also win a Polaroid camera! Plus, every submission will also go into the draw to win automatic American Airlines AAdvantage Platinum status and 160,000 miles in frequent flyer points.

Flights must be booked and ticketed from September 10 to October 31. To win, email your ticket numbers, date tickets were issued, passenger departure date and PNRs to syd.sales@aa.com. 

Good luck!
