Angry Birds Asian Challenge
The Angry Birds Asian Challenge was a competition held by Finnair, a Finnish airline. Contestants would submit an application explaining why they were the biggest Angry Birds fans. The top 8 winners won a ride on a customized Airbus A340 plane that was decorated with Angry Birds images.
The winners competed playing Angry Birds at an altitude of 10 kilometers (33,000 feet) on a flight from Helsinki to Singapore on September 20, 2011 on what was billed as the "longest ever flight of Angry Birds."
