Lufthansa offers engineer who lost 4G iPhone free ticket to Germany

Nicola Lange, Lufthansa's director of marketing and customer relations for the Americas, has posted a letter on his Twitter account to Gray Powell, the Apple engineer who lost the 4G iPhone prototype in a German beer hall in Redwood City, offering complimentary Business Class tickets to Munich.

"I recently read in the news that you lost a very special phone at a German beer bar in California," the letter begins. It goes on to say Lange thinks Powell could use a break and offers him the tickets to Munich where he could literally pick up where he last left off.

A trip to Europe is always a great way to abandon your sorrows, but what might really help Powell right about now isn't free tickets. We're wondering if Lufthansa has any engineering positions available...
