Samsung Spain gives away 200 free Note 8 phones on Iberia flight

Tuesday 24 October 2017 | 09:39 CET | News
Samsung's Spanish subsidiary surprised passengers travelling on an internal flight between Madrid and La Coruna by handing out 200 free Galaxy Note 8 phablets, reports El Pais. The giveaway is part of a marketing campaign run with Iberia, with each Note 8 box handed out accompanied by text saying: "A year ago we asked you to turn it off, today we welcome you on board." The campaign comes a year after airlines the world over banned passengers from using Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 smartphone in-flight due to concerns about exploding batteries.
