Peach Aviation, a Japanese airline that largely flies domestic routes, is cashing in on that fleeting exhilaration.
A vending machine filled with round-trip mileage points to different destinations out of Tokyo’s Narita Airport has been installed in the city.
The process is entirely random, and only upon opening do customers find out where they’re flying.
Each customer pays 5,000 Japanese yen ($44) and receives 6,000 Japanese yen ($53) worth of mileage points, which can only be used toward the destination they won. Using the code printed on a sheet of paper inside the capsule, people then exchange these points for airfare to book online.
