Lufthansa invites iPhone 'loser' to Germany
Lufthansa said on Friday that it has invited the Apple software engineer who left an iPhone prototype in a German-style beer garden in California a free trip to "pick up where you last left off."
In a letter to Gray Powell published on the Internet, the German airline said it had "noted with great interest your passion for German beer and culture."
"We thought you could use a break soon -- and therefore would like to offer you complimentary business class transportation to Munich, where you can literally pick up where you last left off," the letter added.
A Lufthansa spokesman told AFP on Friday the letter was genuine.
Technology blog Gizmodo published this week photos of the next-generation phone, saying it had bought the gadget from an unnamed person also at the bar the night that Powell was celebrating his 27th birthday.
