Try Lauda Air, they sent me a whole bunch of unused safety cards of all their aircraft.

Bangkok Airways has sent me an Atr-42-300.

And Air Atlanta Icelandic has sent me a L1011.

Suprisingly the best airline with responce is COntinental. They sent me all their cards and keep my adress and send me more when they get new planes.

Also Sun Country, Skywest, Southwest, Royal Airlines, Air Ontario, Air Midwest, AMerica West, Atlantic SOutheast AIrlines, Bahamas Air, Champion Air, Miami Air, Fronteir AIrlines, Jetblue and North AMerican all sent me cards after I sent them a letter.

Best of luck I hope this helps,

I have emailed Vanguard Airlines and they sent me a laminated 737-200 safety card with other info. Lots of airlines will give people souveniers and info about the airline if you request for one.

Those models are quite expensive for them to buy. Most likely there are very strict guidelines as to to who and on what occasion they may be handed out.
Safety cards are cheap, especially as they are replaced quite often (and there are thus usually old ones waiting destruction, and loads of spares)

When I wrote to Aer Lingus, they sent me a pen, a postcard book and a Herpa Wings A321 model. This was suprisingly the day after I recieved an Aer Lingus Herpa A330 from the Airplane Shop. (I bought that one)

Happy Flying!

Wow! What a surprise over here. Are you guys trying to say that if you email airlines, they send you safety cards and other goodies to your home, for free? They even send you airline models?

If this is true, I will take a few hours off, and email every single airline I like. Do you think US-based airlines would send these things to Europe? Do they see it as a marketing strategy or what?

Hi,

I asked nearly 50 airlines in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. And 10 sended me some (Aer Lingus, Tyrolean, Virgin Express and others). Big grin I live in Germany and don't think that American airlines send me cards.  Crying

But I try to ask these airlines, which AirOne said.

BA747-436:

Just write to them, that you are about to fly on on of their flights, and that you would like to study the safety instructions in advance  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

No, seriously, just tell them that you are, like all of us, an aviation enthousisast and that you are collecting safety cards and other things of the major airlines. You are seeking to enlarge your collection (is that correct sentence??), and that you would like to know if there is any change that they might send you some of their stuff!

Just remember to be very polite!

Following up.

About writing letters:

You should really think about what you write. It has to be nice because this letter should encourage you to go the extra step to send you things when you will probably never even fly the airline. So make is nice and make your points on what you want clear.

Email:

I have found in sending letters out in the past five years that an actual letter instead of an email works a lot better. I mean A LOT better. I don't know why but when I send emails I get very few but when I send letters I get reponces from almost all of them.

Extra:

Don't be discouraged. I had to send five letters to Royal Airlines to get safety cards. I waited a few months and nothing so I tried another letter.

Also I have recieved two models from airlines. One, I recived a plastic B737-300 w/stand from Maresk Air. and A herpa B747-400 w/stand from Virgin Atlantic. I looked in the Herpa catologue and this model cost 41 dollars. I don't know why they were sending those out, I didn't even ask for them. Also another type of model are the styrofolm (sp?) ones that are great to hand from your ceiling. I have recieved these models from Sun Country Airlines and Mexicana.

America West-

Yes they do!!! I once sent a letter to Miat Mongolian to Mongolia and got a responce from them with bunches of postcards. Just give it time becasue it may take up to three to four months before getting anything back...

AirOne

From the US the best responding continent is Europe then the Middle East and Asia then Africa and finally the worst is South AMerica and Central AMerica..

Apuneger-

That is the spirit!!! To be a airline collector you have to be commited because it takes time to send out all these letters, but in the long run it always pays off....

I emailed just about every airline I've ever heard of and asked them to send me free stuff in the mail (I didnt say it like that though, I was much more polite, and I might have even stretched the truth just a little bit Innocent).

Northwest told me that they were going to send me some things in the mail, and I could expect them within 7-10 days. They also said that they were unable to provide safety cards however Crying

Jet Blue said that they had some stuff in the office and they would be happy to send it to me.

I hope to get a response from all the other airlines. But if I don't, I might use regular letters instead of email.

I'm excited and I cant wait to see what I get Smile/happy/getting dizzy
