They were flattering, heartfelt, poetic (well, they rhymed!) and were often really quite funny – we received thousands of tweets from people all over the Midlands trying to win flights in our recent week long Twitter competition.

To enter, Twitter users had to follow @monarch & tweet why they wanted #freeMonarchflights from Birmingham Airport to the destination of the day.

We drew one winner per day at random from all the eligible entries… but some of the entries were so much fun we decided to share a selection with you.
