Do you remember last year's Galaxy Note 7 scandal, whereby airlines have forbidden to carry this phone on board aircraft? The Spanish division of Samsung has decided to redeem itself by distributing over 200 IB514 passengers on Iberia lines … a free copy of the Galaxy Note 8!
After last year's "explosive" Galaxy Note 7 Samsung did what he could to not lose the trust of his fans and customers. Apparently the Koreans have succeeded, because their mobile department is doing well and the phones are selling well. It turns out that Samsung still remembers this embarrassing incident for themselves and let it show what the Spanish branch of this company has done. Samsung and the Spanish airline Iberia launched a few weeks ago the "Welcome to the Galaxy Note8" board. Its purpose is not only to promote the new Korean flag, but also to thank the local customers for their support after the fall from last year's Galaxy Note 7 , which could not be carried on board, which was a problem for its users. The first stage of the campaign took place from 2 to 6 October, when passengers of the selected flights could enjoy free coffee or tea and snacks from both companies. A much greater surprise awaited passengers of today (23.10) flight IB514. Shortly after launch, the captain of the plane informed the attendees that the vice president of the Spanish branch of Samsung was on board. Mr. Celestino Garcia has spoken and thanked for support in recent months, especially after last year's compromise with Galaxy Note 7. As part of this thanksgiving, each of over 200 IB514 passengers received a free copy of Galaxy Note 8 ! Of course, the distribution of equipment with a market value of about 200 thousand. The euro for a company like Samsung is not a huge expense, but in my opinion the gesture and intent behind it is most praiseworthy. You can not hide that the Koreans are buying a few marketing points, but it does not detract from the joy of those who have been given a free copy of Galaxy Note 8 (test phone in gsmManiaK.pl).
