Sunshine Coast celebrates anna.aero Cake of Week as United files complaint
Peter “Peet” Pallot, General Manager of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Airport (left), celebrates winning anna.aero’s “Cake of the Week” for the launch of Air New Zealand’s new Auckland service. anna.aero had complaints from United, the world’s biggest airline, because they thought they should have won.
Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Airport baked two cakes – “arrivals” and “departures” versions – to win last week’s anna.aero Cake of the Week, securing a win against stiff competition from TAV, which created a Bosphorus Bridge cake for the launch of United’s New York-Istanbul service. United’s new air service won anna.aero’s Route of the Week, but anna.aero received an e-mail from James Mueller, United’s VP Atlantic & Pacific Sales, thanking us for this recognition but complaining: “I thought we deserved ‘Cake of the Week’ too!”
The two Sunshine Coast cakes were baked and decorated by Wendy Berrospi from Sweet Creations in Buderim. The cakes were cut by the Irwin family, curators of Australia Zoo – one of the many superb attractions served by Sunshine Coast Airport.
