Is it like Thanksgiving... jammed packed christmas eve and christmas morning...but dead christmas night? jw, how are the loads on those holiday nights when they have to get the planes to their departing city for another busy day? (like thanksgiving night)
I remember flying FLL-DFW-LAS on christmas DAY and the FLL-DFW route was dead, but DFW-LAS was jammed back.

I once flew back from a very fun trip in BOG to my hometown Medellin. I was having so much fun in BOG that I didn't even notice that I was going to travel back, all alone, and on Christmas eve.
It was not an issue at all, because fortunately the flight is extremely short, the plane (757) was almost full, and both cabin crew and passengers were very very happy. They even gave us a typical food that we eat here in Colombia on Christmas.
We arrived at Medellin airport and it was dead place, although my flight was full.
I was glad to see my parents again after the time I was not at home, and precisely in that date.

I dropped off my partner at ATL this morning-he was flying ATL-TPA to see his folks and it wasn't too bad-except for a very rude APD officer who saw I was trying to move and get out of the way and he pounded on my back window and yelled at me to move-the cop could clearly see I couldn't move anywhere! And I wasn't even close to the curb.
Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

I just did a web check in at the Alaska Airlines web site for a boondoggle I'm doing tomorrow to gather the last frequent flyer miles possible for 2004. But, a check of seat charts show only a couple of middle seats remaining on AS 5 (IAD-SEA @ 8:00), AS 338 (SEA-LGB @ 14:53), and AS 335 (LGB-SEA @ 17:48). However on AS 6 (returning SEA-IAD at 23:10) the plane appears to be a third empty. Just as well since I'll by sleeping by that time, and perhaps I can have a full row to myself.
