I suppose AAdvantage-ites may not receive one of these this year because of the financial situation (though I wonder how much the costs are). But we should recall that AA pretty much raised the online email graphics bar with its video Christmas card in 2009. And, it came back with a decent sequel in 2010. Made some members smile in the midst of daily batches of boring text mail, and got some generally good press for it, too. Despite the occasional jab about not using the "C" word, etc. We'll have to wait a few days to know about 2011, but fully realizing this year might be different, I got nostalgic tonight and looked up the holiday greetings e-mails from '09 and '10. Here they are if anybody else cares to reminisce: 2009 (the one that raised the bar): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Vl5jcbF4Uc&feature=related 2010 (the sequel): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x4wjHpdsuw And, oh yeah, Merry Christmas, AA. It's tough times for y'all, but you've been quite good to me this year.
