TheVine Win a Trip to Germany:
TheVine - Win a Trip to Germany - Terms and Conditions - Life & pop culture, untangled

Not a big fan of Lufthansa long haul flights, their flights across Europe are brilliant, but long haul they really do squeeze you in, I'm only 180cms (just short of 6 foot) so not that tall, but I'm of a rugby build and I'd say the only decent airline for someone of my body size is Air New Zealand, they give you heaps of room! If you are ever flying long haul to Europe try and get cheap Air NZ flights... Obviously if you win the competition free flights are brilliant!
