Early this year Qatar Airlines ran a contest on Instagram and Twitter which encouraged followers to hang their hat around the world in honor of new service being launched from Doha to Dallas. The airline then selected one grand prize winner who received two roundtrip tickets to DFW, one night at the Ritz-Carlton, and two tickets to attend the Qatar Airways Dallas/Fort Worth Launch Gala. The winner will also receive two round-trip business class tickets from one of Qatar Airways’ US gateways to any one of Qatar Airways’ global destinations. In addition to the one grand prize winner, six runner ups were selected to receive an authentic Stetson Cowboy Hat. Turns out I didn’t win the grand prize, but I was just notified that I was a runner up in the contest!
Qatar has not released the names/photos of the other winners yet, but I definitely am interested in seeing what I was up against! Thanks for the new hat Qatar! I am very excited to be named a runner up!
