Is there a limit to the number of entries one is allowed? I didn't feel like reading the T&Cs.

Read the T&Cs. One must answer the wi-fi question and write a short essay. Not clear whether the answer to the question must be correct, but the best essay wins the contest. This is not a random drawing, your essay is judged.

@dsquared37: only one entry is permitted.

RTW flights in economy

While the hotel part of the prize seems flexible enoughto enable multiple shorter trips (the winner gets 30 one night stay certificates that must be used within one year of award), the air portion seems far less flexible. Here is a quote from the T&Cs (I added the bold):

"Winner will also receive a total of 360,000 miles in Lufthansa’s Miles & More program which must be redeemed for two (2) Lufthansa Economy Class Round the World Flight Award Tickets for use by the winner and for one (1) travel companion designated by the winner (“Guest”)."

So, I wonder if the "must" really is enforced. I'm sure that some in the FT community would not want to do a RTW trip in coach and would rather use some existing miles and/or use the LH miles differently to travel in premium cabins.

Quite impossible - LH does NOT have RTW routing, they don't cross the Pacific, so it must be a *A award - but the T&C says "Lufthansa"

I don't think that M&M can put a restriction how you use your miles once they are in place.

Even more to the point, as these will be M&M redemptions, LH's YQ charges will most probably apply.

Probably the T&C should read "...will receive 360k miles, enough for two RTW redemptions in Y..."
