MORE THAN A STUB

An Austrian Airlines boarding-pass tear-off stub is not like any other stub; this one will get you free stuff. Passengers can present their stubs for special offers in Vienna. The first two offers include free admission to the Kunsthistorisches Museum and its subsidiary museums (the Wagenburg Museum of Imperial Carriages at Schonbrunn Palace, the Schatzkammer at the Hofburg, the Lipizzaner Museum and the Museum of Ethnology) and a free drink at DO&CO; restaurant in Vienna’s Stephansplatz. Additional offers are to be added in the coming months. For more information, go to www.austrian.com.
