AN AUDIENCE bordering on 150 travel trade participants joined American Airlines in Sydney on Wed night for the finale of the All American Dream Challenge.
The event was the culmination of American Airlines’ incentive for agents to design their dream holidays using the All American Fare, as promoted on the microsite aa.com/americandream.
Last week, finalists were chosen by American Airlines and Brand USA and flown to Sydney for an evening of all things American.
Guests sampled cocktails from the American Airlines Flagship Lounge and partner Aviation Gin, and there was US fare for all including corn dogs, pumpkin ravioli, pork sliders and fries.
Finalists from STA Travel, Flight Centre, Phil Hoffmann Travel and Destinations Travel Management competed to win the grand prize, which would see the winner fly out the following morning.
The grand prize was two AA return tickets in Premium Econ, with accommodation in LA, New Orleans and Las Vegas, along with activities throughout.
The overall winner was William Bragg from Phil Hoffmann Travel Norwood, who is pictured centre flanked by the four other finalists – Alice Rose, Flight Centre Barangaroo; Kate Halam, STA Travel Penrith; Emina Hodzic, Flight Centre Martin Place and Katrina van Beusekom from Destinations Travel Management.
Those finalists also received two return tickets to LAX with AA.
