It is a different environment out there these days for the airlines. They have to compete on many levels of service and also now in the growing social media to grab the attention of the potential customers. This includes the new and growing art of producing top-viewing videos to convey their messages including holiday greetings. Any airline which fails to recognize this new trend and operate creatively in this new venue will be left behind.
Since we like to report on new trends in air transportation, our intent with this sampling is to show you some of the best holiday messages this year being produced by the airlines. If you know of any good holiday airline messages that we missed please send us the link and we will add it to this list.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our loyal readers, contributors and supporters the best in holiday greetings and wishes. Thank you for your readership, friendship, contributions and support of our AG products and our advertisers.

This year the theme is “Flying home for the holidays” and it features candles at each window on the pictured Boeing 737-86J D-ABMS (msn 37782). The affect is also different at night where the cabin light illuminates each candle at each window.
