Your Thanksgiving Travel Plans

Thu Nov 23, 2000 1:59 am

I know today is one of the busiest travel days of the year. And I was wondering...if you're flying somewhere for Thanksgiving, where are you going? I'm on AA2738, LAX-OAK. My flight leaves LAX at 5:56 pm and it's going to be a mess! So, please share your travel plans and have a happy thanksgiving.

Best Regards,
Modesto2

I am making a mileage run on CO/NW to reach Gold Elite status for the year.

ATL-EWR-CLE-IAH-SAT-LAX-IAH-CLE-CAK-DTW-ATL

8000+ miles, 10 segments, 40 hours

Dang, how much does this trip cost you B747-437B?
As for me, well all my family lives in the DFW metroplex so I don't get to go anywhere.

JFK-FCO in about a few hours   Love to get away from NYC during
these holidays.

Our neighborhood gets swamped with the parade every year, so we decide
to leave town.

Thanksgiving dinner with family.

SN330 - my total cost is $171 plus tax = $219

With my elite status, I should be able to upgrade all the segments too.

Not a bad deal eh?

Upgrades came through for every segment except ATL-EWR. That baby is oversold though, so maybe I can swing some bump compensation as well.

Its shaping up to be a not too unpleasant day....  

PS - For the benefit of those who think I am crazy, I will be meeting up with folks in EWR, CLE and LAX. So I actually get to visit friends too!

Went YWG-YYZ on Oct 6th on AC A319. Had Thanksgiving supper on the Sunday. Came back on Oct 9 on an AC A320. Both flights over-sold of course because of the long week-end.
