As per the title really!

Nothing for me personally as yet however I am thinking of a visit to the German Markets however a warmer climate might be on the cards.

I will be flying from Las Vegas to Heathrow on the 14th for a pre-Christmas visit to the UK to see my parents and to do a railtour, namely the Branchline Society's "The Grand Farewell" (basically celebrating ten years of Grand Central and commiserating the fact that their HSTs will be going out of service). I am then flying back to Las Vegas on Monday 18th - so a super short trip. Hopefully I may even see some snow. There's little chance of that in Las Vegas, unless I go to Mount Charleston of course!

We are off to Munich for 2 nights then train to Salzburg for 2 nights then to Fuschl-am-see for a week returning from Salzburg. All the Xmas decorations are staying in the attic.

Nowhere. Seriously giving thought to being abroad for Christmas next year.

Finally managed to redeem some Avios, off to DFW for 4 days to see a mate.

Upstairs on the 747 both ways.

A good plan! A decade ago I went away for 5 weeks to Australia and the Far East over December/January and it was wonderful to be in the sunshine and away from the dark gloomy cold nights and as someone else has said no Christmas decorations to put up!

Flying to Madrid on the 19th on the Iberia A340 then home again on the 20th on a BA B777 if that counts? It’s a work trip so both flights in economy. My cup of joy doth overrunneth!

Fab, I'm sure you'll be looking forward to that! I'm doing something similar and on a high-J on the UD too!

Ex-AMS to BKK, booked in I class via HKG, then staying in Hua Hin (4 nights) and Bangkok (NYE). Might switch out and buy some more Hilton points to get a fifth night (currently on points and cash) in Hua Hin.

Wasn't planning anything, but ailing in-laws (who were supposed to be arriving here in the Bay Area this weekend) have us traveling back to the UK and their home in the Lake District for Christmas now.

Could be worse I suppose, but I was rather looking forward to a Californian Christmas and not spending indecent amounts of money on air travel over the holidays. Was really hoping for a BA business class sale for the holidays, but couldn't risk waiting.

We managed to find two seats in BA First from SAN to LHR then onto Zurich in Business. Was a nice surprise as allowed us to plan a last minute trip to Florence for Christmas.

Although in Y at least they are quite decent aircraft/seats for an EU flight ^
