This doesn’t happen too often. Samsung took marketing to another level. The company gave away 200 units of the brand new Galaxy Note 8 for free.
Samsung generously gave away 200 units of the Galaxy Note 8 and what looks like a way of encouraging people that its phone doesn't blast in flights, the units were given to passengers on a flight in Spain.
The units were given in a late night flight from La Coruña to Madrid, and do note that the cost of phone is more than that of the ticket. Each passenger got a box, which read, "A year ago we asked you to turn it off, we welcome you today on board."

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and S8 devices managed to overshadow the memories of the blasting Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the most recent incident in India could bring back those memories. A Samsung smartphone of a passenger on the Delhi-Indore flight caught fire mid-air. This didn't just panic the passengers onboard, but the flame didn't go off immediately as the airplane's fire extinguisher reportedly malfunctioned. Finally, it had to be put in water.
