Limited edition New Year's Day Duck

Just saw these ducks; Anyone know if they are limited to just January 1st ?

I have a flight out of FRA in 2 days and would really love to get one for my growing collection.

According to the second link it was a limited edition of 500, each numbered and they were also handed out on the plane.

Shame they didn't have something similar a year ago when I spent the best part of New Year's Day in the FCT waiting for my connecting flight.

Ah! I guess they really were just for the day. Pity, but wouldn't it be cool if they did more limited edition Ducks.

You're right that the second picture mentions that they were handed out on the plane, but the third pic (http://instagram.com/p/ino0WMiwuL/) looks like the lounge or FCT in the back.
Since thats the one thats wrapped, I figured they handed them at the FCT and the opened ones are pictured on the plane..

By the way, I'm not sure where the ducks have been, but MUC didn't have any a week ago. The lady mentioned they won't have them anymore.

At the FCT last week as well, they said they didn't have any on that day, so I didn't get a single one this trip.

Got two on Jan 1 and 2. One is labelled 1/1650 and the other 1/1150. Go figure there must be thousands. If i remember these were given in past years as well. Gave mine to the kids behind me so they would stop kicking my seat from Fra to Ham.

SMK77 had one of these with a serial number in the 1200's.
I believe they were handed out in the lounge?

Paging SMK!

I was in the FCT on 1/1. One of the attendants walked around and gave one to each passenger and then I got another one on the plane.

And I rescued two stray ones that I found along the way!

Is there collector's value in these things? I noticed fairly high asking prices on Ebay.

Some ducks seem to have made their way to MUC FCL.

Confirmed! I got one when I entered the FCL MUC on 1/1. They didn't know how many ducks they had but I don't think that MUC has more than 1,200 visitors a day...

They were still handing some out two days ago. I guess they had some leftover.
