It's time for the traditional "where will LH take you this Christmas" thread - 2012 reloaded.
(I heard "Last Christmas" by WHAM yesterday on the radio, so it must be time to start the festivities)
I'll start: I'm staying put at home and will be going absolutely nowhere !
9th of December will probably be my last flight for 2012 - a very boring oneway MUC - DUS in whY (€130 oneway in whY versus €650 in J .... go figure).
So, let's hear it ?
Where will LH be taking you on the C slide or NEK'ing you ?
Lucky enough for new First or good old First ?
Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
I'll NEK off from BEG to BER (TXL really, via MUC/FRA) from 04/01 to 07/01 with my GF in Y. We're hoping to catch the last of the Christmas markets, as we were unable to take the trip in December due to work/studies. We've also booked ourselves a Privilege Room in Mercure Berlin City for 57€/night during Accor's Berlin sale, so I'm looking forward to a really great (and inexpensive) weekend trip.

well ill be spending xmass in the air in LH 797 taking me back home to some nice duck and goose eating festivities before I take off to MCO on the 27th. Looks like lufthansa is my holiday destination #1 this year.

LH are taking me on the 12th to SIN and then SQ are taking me onwards to MEL. Eventually, I will end up in SYD for Christmas with my little brother and his family. Apart from BHX-FRA, no NEK or sliding C is involved in this trip.
Dear airport security critters, Das Leben der Anderen was a terrible warning not a how-to manual.
Booked 2 short city trips before and after the holidays.
2 days in Riga to explore the old town; and then a weekend early January in Minsk. First time visit to Belarus, bringing me 1 shy of my quest to visit every capital city in Europe.
All in a mix of OS, LH and LO.
Merry christmas and safe travels!

Like weero I'll be enjoying the dAArk OW side of the flying world flying north on Finnair (operated by flybe nrdic in 3 of 4 legs) MUC to KEM 22-26DEC. The connections suck so bad we're overnighting in HEL both ways, one direction on the dime of AY since they had a schedule change LH/SAS would have been 2x the price I paid (aprox 1400€ for a family of four)

On 23 December LH will take me to FRA where I'll swap NEK with NH's Dreamliner with 1-2-1/1-1-1 layout to HND. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the feeder won't be delayed and they won't put me on the A380 C slide to NRT instead.
My first flight in 2013 will be the route in reverse departing HND at 01:10 on 1 January. Unfortunately M&M just reduced mileage for NH Z fares from 200% to 150%. Happy New Year!
