Heathrow Express Free at Thanksgiving

Heathrow Express in recognition of American Thanksgiving is offering free travel to Americans between 11/18 and 11/23. Unfortunately, I am going through Gatwick and so far have not been able to get them to match the deal. Their marketing manager says he considered it but decided not to follow suit.

Perhaps if the marketing manager hears from more Americans Gatwick will make the same offer. You can use the Gatwick Express website to communicate/

COOL we go to London every Thanksgiving. I am an airline employee no kids, so my husband and I have found that the flights are usually wide open, but I think more people are discovering it. AS long as you just do carry on it works great. How can I find more about this, I have tried in the past to look the the WEBSITE but had problems with it maybe its better now. By the way we went in Sept and I went on the Ferris Wheel it was so cool, I hope to do it again but tickets are often sold out. Please fell free to e-mail me with info.

I got a nice response back from the Gatwick Express folks...but the are NOT doing the US Thanksgiving promotion.

Has anyone else sent an e-mail or called? You never know....a few more e-mails may get them to change their minds.

What do Americans actually 'give thanks' for at this celebration ?

curious: thanksgiving day has two purposes actually. One is to commerate the first thanksgiving dinner way back when the puritans threw a little dinner party and invited the native americans and they all sat down to give thanks for a bountiful harvest and living in peace. whether or not that little legend is entirely true is besides the point. In addition to that commeration, americans also might give thanks for anything of particular gladness, i.e. a bountiful harvest, a warm and safe home, health, relative prospertiy. It is really up to the individual to determine if they have something to be thankful for and to celebrate it. i usually try to remind myself that i live a life of relative comfort with adequate shelter, food, clothing and love. but, of course, I can't speak for all americans and it is not my place to stereotype what others are giving thanks for. it is really a beautifully simple and non-commercialized day of thanks and it is fast becoming my favorite holiday for those very reasons.
