Cake of the Week vote: Vikings crush Europe

Cake of the Week vote: Vikings crush Europe

We have not yet found twitter evidence to explain the Widerøe’-Copenhagen-Haugesund win and can only assume that people actually just admired this cake, in contrast to Ryanair’s Leeds/Bradford to Riga cake which came last with a record-breaking dismal 3%.

It was an all-Viking win for Widerøe’s Copenhagen to Haugesund in the readers’ Cake of the Week vote with some 2,000 voters taking part in selecting the best cake of the Winter Season Part I route launches.

Widerøe’s Viking ship sailed home with 33% of the vote over the other six cakes with easyJet’s Glasgow to Amsterdam never able to close down the lead, despite a valiant tweeting effort which was also conducted by other airline and airport entrants:

Glasgow International – @GLA_Airport

Cardiff Airport – @FLYCardiff

  • @flybmi Congrats , bmi regional’s East Midlands to Frankfurt cake is leading the vote now, with 26.67% of all votes bit.ly/tfUuJY

We have not yet found evidence of the same twittering tactics for the Widerøe’-Copenhagen-Haugesund win and can only assume that people really actually just admired the cake, in contrast to Ryanair’s Leeds/Bradford to Riga cake which came last with a record-breaking dismal 3%, no doubt ruining the celebrations planned for the airlines 20% profits hike.

Skymark’s historic arrival

Meanwhile, celebrations for last week’s Route of the Week were not forgotten. Skymark’s historic arrival at Tokyo’s Narita Airport took the prize and was celebrated by Narita and Skymark teams, headed by Hideharu Miyamoto, Director Corporate Strategies & Planning, Narita Airport Corporation.

    What makes a “winning cake”?

    I’d say, one of the reasons is the uniqueness, like the BMI-jet made obviously of cake (marzipan?) and not just plastic. It would top it, having some equally well done references to the new route celebrated… Like a wooden shoe for Amsterdam, Big Ben for London, etc.
    But all cakes ARE impressive 😉

    A clever design is eye-catching, and would be better if it tasted good too.

    Jetairfly’s looks like it might be good to eat, but I can’t see the decoration so don’t really know how “clever” the design is.

    Flybe’s look really decorative, but maybe not much of an aviation or destination theme.

    No-one seems to use puffs of cream as clouds – is that just too obvious?

    Please send samples! 🙂
