Modedators: This question ties to my company, as I would be interested in hearing ideas and I think its a legitimate topic. However if you feel it breaches self promotion guidelines...please remove.

MetJet is getting ready to launch 2 destinations from GRB this October (GRB-MCO, MCO-GRB, GRB-RSW, RSW-GRB). As such, I want to do something special for the passengers on board, and even want to try to use the Inaugural events/gifts as promotions for the flights (in an effort to sell more tickets).

This being the case, what Inaugural flight events, gifts, etc. have you seen in the past that you liked? Which ones did you not like?

In 1991, Southwest handed out one-way unrestricted tickets to anywhere they flew for every OAK-LAX or LAX-OAK ticket purchased for something like the first 6-8 weeks of service on the route. I collected north of a dozen round-trips worth of them.

That was a pretty nice inaugural gift!

We are running a promo right now where if you fly by 11/16 your next trip on MetJet is free, so we have that going for us. We are ramping up the marketing even more to get the word out.

I was on the inaugural DL TLH -> ATL service in 1983. Still have a very nice "stand up" plaque on my desk!

(incidentally it was a good ole' DC9-30)!

I love to fly, and it shows!

MetJetCEO- first off, congrats!

Second; I never was on the flight but I really liked seeing the memorabilia that JL gave on the 787 NRT-BOS route.

I have been on a few inaugurals and often got a bag with various items.

I would suggest some of the following :

Party at the gate with free drinks and snacks.

A future discount coupon maybe $25-30 .

Free model of the aircraft.

Keyrings with the website and telephone number on branded with company logo.

I have also seen keyring flashlights with company branding on them . They are often handy and alot of people will keep them .

Anyway good luck with the launch and look forward to reading what you do for them in the end . Maybe post here so we can see some photos of the events etc.... Hope someone does a Trip Report
