In our case this meant being shunted out of our preferred seats (1A/K) and put in two random seats at the back of F, not even together although we're on the same PNR and are both Gold.
There really isnít going to be the demand. There will be hardly any business travel in that week as everybody wants to get back home to be with their families by Wednesday evening and with the sales and the four day weekend thereís not going to be much traffic until the following Monday.

BA will no doubt reduce frequency to other US destinations over the same period. They do each year.
