According to an email from Chicago-based Groupon, people who purchase vouchers will be able to select from a slew of popular international destinations, such as the Great Wall of China and the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

They will also get:

  • complimentary meals, snacks, and alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages on the plane
  • free on-demand in-flight entertainment
  • a pair of safari hats
  • a steamer trunk

The development comes less than a week after Virgin America ran a deal via Google Offers. The airline offered $50 vouchers that let the buyer to pick up 50 percent off roundtrip flights from San Francisco or Los Angeles to four destinations: Dallas, Seattle, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
