I'm not going to use 2 domestic roundtrip awards. Who wants them?

Hi,

Last year I won 2 US-domestic round trip flights from AA. They expire in October and I'm not going to be able to use them.

The flights must be booked into T inventory.

If you want one roundtrip, drop me a PM.

Cheers,
Paul.

Go raibh maith agat As I said, I was going to use them and knew others probably could! I got these last year for winning the Squirrel Sighting contest (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...7&id=503360971)

Around 20 people have PMed me regarding the tickets. I have given one of the vouchers away to one of the first two users to PM me after he/she checked with AA that T inventory was available. I'm waiting for the other person to get back to me. If they can't get it, I'll move on to PMer #3 and so on.

Both award tickets are now gone after the first two users to contact me secured T class inventory. One of the users has already booked his\her flight and didn't have to pay taxes\fees.

Thanks for all the PMs!

Very cool gesture, indeed.

I'm just wondering about the tax implications of this for the users

If I may ask, did Ireland make you pay taxes for this, as would happen if one won this in the US, and the agency reported the winnings (I mean, it's due in either case, but if not reported... )

Cheers.
