In an effort to help advertise the Wii U, Nintendo gave
everyone on a Southwest flight from New Orleans to Dallas a free console.

The 100-passenger flight was informed on the plane and had a
photo-op with Mario upon landing. They were also able to play at Wii U gaming
lounges, now available in some major airports through a partnership of Nintendo
and Southwest Airlines.

“As Southwest’s video game partner, our aim is to bring
smiles to travelers and Southwest Employees through the fun of Nintendo video
games”
Nintendo

So far a few airports have been confirmed to receive the Wii
U lounges, including Dallas Love Field, Chicago Midway, Denver, Atlanta, Tampa
Bay, and St. Louis.

The two companies are even hosting a giveaway, with 30 grand
prizes consisting of two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines and a Wii U.

Hi! I'm Sam. I like video games. A lot. I'm also known to frequent conventions in cosplay and attend metal concerts. When I'm not painting, I like to lift heavy at the gym. I do enjoy long walks at the jersey shore and oreo milkshakes. Die-hard Flyers fan. Feel free to talk to me, I don't bite!
