Saw this article and immediately thought of a.net, as there as several of you who might meet this criteria. You should apply and take a chance at getting some free tickets!  Smile Maybe Mendis or somebody can make it happen...

Source: CNNMoney

"There's a new type of "sexual" in town, and Virgin Atlantic wants to say thank you to the lucky leader of the pack.

The airline is looking for the best of what it has dubbed "jetrosexuals" or the "new jetsetters," and it is willing to reward this frequent flyer with two roundtrip Upper Class tickets to London.

The airline defines this group as those who "leave the terra firma behind each day to move business and culture forward."

But simply getting on the plane isn't enough. The 11 Commandments of the "jetrosexual" include tenets such as "thou shalt be able to order a beer in six different languages" and "thou shalt have at least one passport stamp from a country that now goes by a different name."

...

"Nominations can be submitted at www.virginatlantic.com/flights, and the winner will be announced in October."

What a great idea and a lot of fun at the same time! Fortunately I can indeed order a beer in six languages but the bit about the country with a different name I'd be struggling on, so that's me out already.

Anyway, another fab marketing idea from Messers Branson and Co.!

I thought it was pretty interesting.. so Mendis, ConcordeBoy, and the like.. get going on this! And since you're winning two upper-class tickets to LHR/LGW, maybe you can remember who told you about said-promotion and take your good buddy BCAInfoSys along. I promise, the beer's on me while we're there!  wink

Exactly. What a stupid term.

Metrosexual is a term coined for men who "behave and dress as fashionably as gay men" but who claim to be straight.

What does being a global business leader and jetsetter have to do with that?

Morons.

Being an Aussie you should know almost nobody drinks Fosters down there. Would be more better off with asking for a VB or better yet a tinni or a middi LOL. Best wishes.

He's joking. Man, you Aussies always get uptight with the mere mention of Fosters. It's like freaking Pavlov's dog!

Wow - talk about throwing a damp towel on things. It doesn't have to do with sexual preference. It's an airline advert. Unlike the usual boring airline advertising, this one is a bit more fun and clever. Kind of like taking the Austin Powers vibe and making it very new millennium.

Relax, guys. Loosen up.

27 Aussieindc : Wanderer, is this a real case of 'No sex please, we're British!!!'? I thought it was the Americans that were prudish!
28 VSMike : You nailed it. Catchy marketing lingo for an otherwise inept company. Oh well...
