Unfortunately I can no longer make this as I'll be taking a weekend trip to LUX with a friend and the flight leaves earlier that day. We will raise a glass to you from the T3 CX lounge

Euro Traveller, so a bit of a pathetic points run if it were I'm treating my friend to the delights of the T3 lounges, and we'll catch up with a friend of his over there. We'll see some of the LUX sights and probably pop over to Trier Christmas market, too.
