I won't be flying in on this airline, but...

Nepal Airlines suspends international flights from Dec. 18 to 31 Kathmandu (PTI): Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC), the country's national carrier, will suspend all its international flights for two weeks in December due to the shortage of aircraft, airline sources said. The airline's only operational Boeing 757 is scheduled to go for overhauling to Brunei in the third week of December, while another aircraft is currently undergoing a C-check there and will take a fortnight to become operational. "The airline has stopped selling tickets for all international flights between December 18 and 31," said an airline official. The NAC needs to extract one of the two engines on the operational plane and install it on the Boeing in Brunei and then fly it back to Nepal to resume flights, sources said. The carrier would be able to resume its international flights only from January 1, 2008.

Nope. Nothing in my "pigeonhole". I'm looking forward to it, though!
