Why Your Pen MUST Look Like Your Plane
If you're a really fancy traveler (and we know we all want to be one), then you KNOW you really need to be filling out your immigration forms with a pen that looks like the Airbus you're flying on, right?
Well, it so happens there's an airline that thinks as fancy as you do, and is enticing passengers to invest in a Montblanc Starliner A380 pen (that last word, "pen", sounds really cheap after the rest of the title, so we'll go along with the official description of it as a "fineliner writing instrument") on a flight, and be entered into a draw to win another, even more fancy pen worth over $19,000 (for pen afficionados it's the Limited Edition Montblanc Skeleton A380 Pen).
The Emirates contest also includes a prize of round-trip tickets to Hambug, Germany, where you will be allowed/made (depending on how much you love pens) to watch craftsmen put the finishing touches on your own pen, then whisked off to see an Emirates Airbus being built.
The offer runs through June, so get busy ...
