The rules are simple, if you live in the United States, except Florida and New York and have the first or last name of Sydney, you can enter. For those in Australia and have the first or last name of Houston, you may enter. If your name matches, you will be on your way to a nearly all expense five day vacation from United Airlines!
United Airlines does realize that different Sydney’s spell their name in different ways. Therefore, United Airlines will allow a variation of the spelling. United recognizes the following spellings for Syndey: Sydney; Sidney; Sidnie; Sidnee; Sidneigh; Sidni; Sydnee; Sydny; Sydni; Sidne; Cydney; Cidney; Cidnie; Cidnee; Cidneigh; Cidni; Cydnee; Cydny; Cydni; or Cydne.
I am attempting to locate the spelling variations of Houston, but these are not currently listed in the official rules.
