I flew Air New Zealand on Christmas day (missing out on the 24th of December in the process due to the International Dateline), and there was no mention of Christmas until we were pulling up to the terminal: "Finally, for those of you that clelebrate it, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas" The 50 year anniversary of the Coral Route got more of a mention than that. I was a bit astounded that they were worried about offending people by mentioning Christmas. PC hits new lows. Yay.

This is from last year's Xmas...I was checked in by a UA agent dressed as Santa Claus...;when the flight was delayed for more than 4 hours due to a late arrival of the aircraft, she was trying to book me on another flight that will get me from CDG to LAX faster...truth be told, hard to take the agent seriously when dressed as Father Xmas. I ended up waiting the four hours to get me to LAX....and Father Xmas did not even upgrade me !
