How To Get Stuff From Airlines?

Thu May 25, 2000 1:18 am

Hello All. I was wondering how do you request things from airlines (safety cards, magazines, stationary). I am kinda new at this, do you jsut e-mail the airline and ask them for certain things. Also, does anybody know airlines that are generous with giving out freebies?

Thanks a lot

Just email them and ask them in a polite manner for what type of things you collect.

A couple of airlines which are very generous include:

Crossair
Swissair
Sabena
KLM
the British charter airlines
Frontier Airlines
Dragonair
Austrian Airlines
Finnair
Czech Airlines

For starters, just stick with the European airlines as they seem to be the best, even airlines like Cyprus Airways, Olympic Airways and Corsair send stuff out.

If you need some link take a gander at my links site

It has links to airlines' websites and also has email addresses where known.

Cheers

I just recieved a barff bag and a schedule from Canada 3000. I just e-mailed them and asked them for a barff bag after I explained I am a collector. They replied to my e-mail 2 days later. They were very good about it (as opposed to Air Transat whom I e-mailed at the same time and they still haven't replied). By the way, Canada 3000 and Air Transat are Canadian charter carriers.

American Airlines, Northwest, America West, National and Legend are all very nice as well.

KLM is certainly not nice. I worte them a polite e-mail asking for any airline collectibles (barf bags, safety cards, etc.) and their response was:

"I am sorry but we do not give away anything."

Finnair though was very cooperative and they replied the next day and said they will send me stuff, but I forgot to send them my postal address so they wrote back asking for that.

Typically you can just write to the airline's PR department and request materials. Or, just pilfer what you need off the plane like I do!!

Most airlines will at least respond if you e-mail them politely with a request for cards, though yu may not get what you want.
Don't make a habit of milking the airlines for cards- my personal policy is that I will only e-mail a certain "Airline X" once, and only then if I can't acquire the card(s) of theirs I'm after from a trade or sale. Milking the airlines will turn them off to our hobby if they find themselves spending tons of replacing safety cards constantly.
The only exception to this rule is jetBlast (jetBlue), which I constantly harass because I love their replies! >:->
