Two days ago, we covered the Cathay Pacific / HKG Airport camapign where free tickets to Hong Kong were advertised to be given away (raffled out) from Cathay’s North American gateways.
I have followed the raffle closely, monitored it in real-time and might even have booked something, but nobody I know was even remotely successful in securing a complimentary ticket.

It was pretty clear to me that I definitely won’t be getting a ticket that day but I decided to stick around regardless to see how it plays out. In the meanwhile, I was looking at the comment section on our article:
