A mysterious red phone booth made its way around Pittsburgh this past week.

To celebrate the launch of new, nonstop service between Pittsburgh and London, the promotion by British Airways, VisitBritain and Pittsburgh International Airport, offered the chance to win a pair of tickets on the new flight. Participants who answered the ringing phone were greeted by British comedian Chris Flockton, who tested them with trivia knowledge or other challenges.

Pittsburghers may have noticed it when passing through Market Square last Wednesday or before the Pirates home opener April 1.

Read here for more on the contest, which ended Monday.
