Quoting Firiko (Thread starter): 31,545x250= 7,886,250 miles which in total is enough for 3944 free return flights from Istanbul (THY hub) to any destination in Europe served by THY.
That is if one person collected all the miles. But I doubt they did. 250 miles by itself for just an individual won't get anyone anything. They then have to earn thousands and thousands more for that to have any more than token value.
Part of marketing is getting the customer involved. By getting them to your website to participate in helping to choose a new livery, they feel a sense of involvement. To boot, they get a small token, 250 miles.

I vote for a management wide "bottle out"
They're probably too scared to change the livery so radically as the voted design would have it.
This is a big problem with a lot of airlines, trust me I know. I've presented some designs to a few relatively big airlines and its all gone well right up to just before the point of no return where everything suddenly goes cold. Then I get a message saying they're going to stick with their current design for some time. A few weeks later a tiny tweak to their original image is evident.

In a similar vein, when FL held a poll to name their next city, the city that was evidently leading the poll (TYS) didn't get to become the next city, SRQ did. So what it could be is that THY already had their decision made, and ran this "poll" to make it seem like their passengers were contributing to the airline.
