A few days ago I received a parcel from Lauda Air containing an inflight magazine, many postcards, company profile, Lauda Air B777 information folders and a B737-300 safety card. So, I think that Lauda Air doesn't send models anymore.
Anyway, I'm convinced that the Austrian and German airliners stay on the absolute TOP for sending various aviation stuff !

Even though the last post is 2 years old I might as well chime in. I got the following models as gifts in 1:200 scale from these 2 airlines. The CX is made by Herpa and QR models by Hogan. Being a premium frequent flyer with QR, they just dumped them on me:
A330-300 asian games red livery (3)
A330-300 asian games orange livery (1)
A330-200 asian games blue livery (1)

Well in regards to the CX models, I met the country manager of CX where I live and told him I collect models and he asked me if I have any CX models in my collection so I told him I had the 1:200 A340-600 which I bought for $50 and he then said he has something more I might like to add to my collection and the next time I saw him he came along with the 1:200 B777-300 and A330-300.
As for the QR models, these were made exclusively for the QR marketing dept and not for public sale. They were only given to select QR agents but later on I heard that their sales offices were also giving them away to QR priviledge club members which I am, so I just sent them a fax with my membership number and told them that I collect a/c models and would love to have a few QR models to add to my collection and I got an immediate reply asking for my address and within a week I received a huge FedEx box with a dozen models inside, many of them doubles and even triples of the same model.
