November will almost end and I still haven’t updated my blog. I don’t know what to write and I don’t know what to blog. Good thing, a sudden burst of idea appeared in my head. It’s a cool new contest before November ends…
So what is this cool new contest? It’s not really cool because it’s just another writing contest. What makes this cool is that you need to write a post about your worst airline experience. But not just any other airline company, this contest is intended only for Zest Airways Inc.. For those who don’t have a previous experience with Zest Air, you can still join by reading the mechanics below!
If you want some examples, you can read my Smart Bro and Cebu Pacific post, or read Batang Yagit’s Zest Air experience post.
The criteria for this contest is very simple: The best hate post wins!
Here are the mechanics of the hate post contest.
1. You need to write about your previous horrible experience with Zest Airways. If you don’t have a previous bad experience with Zest Air, you can still join by reading mechanic number 2.
2. If you encountered the same situation below, what would you do? and how would you react?
Zest Airways called you and informed you that your flight has been rescheduled one day after your scheduled flight. You agreed with Zest Air and accepted the new flight schedule. But when you arrived in the airport, there are no Zest Air flights available. After that horrible experience, Zest Air still has the guts to ask you to pay an additional fee for not showing up in your scheduled flight!
3. Just write anything that you want to write and don’t forget to mention Zest Air in your post.
4. In order for your entry to qualify, you need to link this Zest Air post in your entry, using the anchor text “Zest Air”.
5. All entries without the said link will be disqualified.
6. After you published your entry, give me your post permalink by leaving a comment below.
7. Entries can be in English, Tagalog, or in your local dialect (Cebuano, Illonggo, Bisaya, Bicolano, Bul-anon, etc.).
8. The best entry will win Php10,000.00 via Paypal.
9. Deadline of submitting your entries is on December 15, 2010 at exactly 11:59 PM (GMT+8)
There will be only one winner. So write your worst experience about Zest Air and get a chance to win additional cash for Christmas! Ten thousand pesos is at stake for the best entry! Let’s all write about our experience with Zest Air this Yuletide Season!
Good luck to all participants!
