Yeah, I am the same as Tim, I have a life so I will not be shooting on Christmas Day!

Sorry but, as many flights are cancelled on xmas day why bother shooting on xmas day as its a good social time once a year? Aircraft can be shot anyday...they can wait  Big thumbs up

I'm sending my gf down south so I'll be free! I'll go and shoot if the weather is ok.

BTW - I can't shoot everyday. I am banned from all 3 local airports by my girlfriend.

No... And if anyone's thinking of shooting anything unique on Christmas Day, please don't bother e-mailing the screeners - like the flights, most screening will be suspended on December 25th too Big grin

Do planes get decorated on Xmas? I would love to see decorate interior photos.


I usually shoot trains on Xmas day. The locos look sweet decked out in garland and flags and wreaths.

Somehow, I don't think a wreath or garland would last long on the nose of a 757, do you? Then again, I would love to see one take off with it.

1998-2001 I have always been on a plane either on the Dec 24th or 25th.

Business Class was always empty, lot's of space to stretch out, Coach on the other hand was always packed, don't know why though.

As far as my photography is concerned, I have no intentions of going out shootin unless there is a unique weather pattern or anything really interesting going on.

Flying on these days is a lot of fun.....people for some reason are not as cranky and stressed and the f/a and cockpit crews are in a good mood.

Last time I flew, which was Dec 24th 2000 (LH Business Class) from BOS - FRA, no decoration inside the plane but some of the crew members partially dressed as Santa Claus.
