I'm sure they will do something Christmassy... On American Independence Day they gave out cupcakes that looked like burgers... Maybe they will wear Santa hats! Nothing that different really...

The cabin crew won't be very festive I imagine as they are having to work for no extra pay instead of spending tine with their families! My friend who works for Thomson hates having to work on Christmas Day, and they never get enough willing volunteers. On the plus side the airport will be very quiet, but bring your own turkey sandwiches as there are only limited shops/catering outlets open.

You'll have a great time when you get there though. We spent New Year in Orlando one year and had a fantastic time!

I am sure it will be just another routine flight. Maybe with a Santa Hat thrown in.

I am not particularly bothered for myself. It's Just with my children flying on Christmas day I wanted a little bit of Christmas cheer. It doesn't matter though because once we arrive we will more than make up for It....Thanks for taking the time to reply x x x

"Flying with Virgin on christmas day "

I understand Joseph tried that too. I don't think he fully bought the story either.

We flew with Virgin on the day of the Royal Wedding and they served Little extras with meals. So lets hope they would do the same on Xmas day.
