Several years ago I received models from British Airways (L1011 and BAC-1-11) and Lauda Air (CRJ).
These were these plastic snap-together models made by Wooster - scale is 1:200 / 1:300.

Lauda Air : No Models Anymore !

Sun Dec 26, 1999 7:32 am

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 !

I've gotten a A319 from Indepence Air at an airshow for free. My company sells them on there website. They got a high end model and a low end. Pretty nice but alittle pricey.

British airways were selling models of a 747 and concorde at an airshow a few weeks ago, they cost £10 with half of the money going to a cancer charity.

I had to write to Richard Branson/Virgin Atlantic for a lesson in school, I got sent a auto-graph and some postcards of the planes, In the past when I was younger I had written to him and he had sent me a 747 and an A340 old livery model.

Lot's of Airlines have sent me stuff since I started in about 1997 (Used to give me something to do when I was lil. I don't do it much now, but some airlines can be very kind, I recieve alot of Post Cards if I decide to write to one.

I have recieved stuff off some of the airlines below - these are just some.

Air Singapour - Window sticker and info on fleet/airline
British Airways - A few Utopia Models
Virgin Atlantic - 2 models, postcards & Auto-graph
Ryanair - sent a order form
Air 2000 - sent a order form
First Choice - sent a order form
Aer Lingus - sent a order form
Cyprus Air - sent some postcards and pens
DHL - Via E-mail - got sent lots of DHL stuff  Smile

Lot's of Airlines will reply to you, but at the same time lot's wont.

Depends.

Here's an idea - pretend to be a 5 year old obsessed with aviation and you might get more than if you say "Uh, I'm a 28 year old plane nut - gimme free stuff".

BTW - could this possibly be the oldest continuous thread on a.net?

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:

Cathay Pacific:

B777-300
A330-300

Qatar Airways:

A340-600 (3)
A330-300 asian games red livery (3)
A330-300 asian games orange livery (1)
A330-200 asian games blue livery (1)
A330-200 (4)

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.
