Christmas Day Flights

From your experience, which airlines get into the "Christmas spirit" the most and are menus, cabins, uniforms different on December 25th?

When I flew on Christmas Eve, all of AA pilots were wearing a Christmas tie with pictures of Christmas stuff on it. Our MD80 captain on the return flight wore a regular black sweater vest for tux.

Lufthansa has several "Adventskraenze" aboard their longhaul planes. They look very nice on the cabin walls.
This is/was during the entire christmas season.

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 !

One Northwest DC-9 flight attendant was wearing a Santa hat during my flight from RIC-DTW on Christmas morning. And my CX 777 flight and SQ A310 flight had Christmas decorations up in the cabin.

(On TV) at LAX, I've seen the American Airlines employees dressed up for Christmas and Halloween.

Singapore Airlines

Crew adding the "Merry Christmas" message after their after-landing speech...not surprisingly, even for a multi-cultural airline.

Ribbon ornaments hung, spaced between 4 or 5 windows.

I flew CO and SK (SAS) on Christmas Day this year. One of the CO gate agents was wearing red. When the SAS slight landed in CPH (on 12/26), they wished us a Merry Christmas. That was it.

I flew SIA between JFK and FRA on Christmas Eve, 2000.

They had ornaments strung up along the sides like Gotairbus said, but they also served a nice roast Turkey dinner that night, too, in addition to the other meals.
Excuse me, but what does God need with a starship?
