What do you mean by "specials"? If you mean they ran coaches rather than trains over the Christmas period whilst charging the full price then they ran "specials"

I think the OP is looking for special offers. I don't see anything on their website but that isn't to say there aren't offers through other companies.

Looks like the Heathrow Express isn't running both 25th and 26th December this year with early closure 24th.

Just the bus replacement service which itself stopped running early in previous years.

It is tucked away here on their website - https:/…service-plans

"Due to essential Network Rail engineering improvement works, Heathrow Express will operate a rail replacement coach service on Christmas Day and Boxing Day between London Paddington and Heathrow Airport. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Timings of the rail replacement coach service will follow shorty. Please continue to check the website for further details."

Unless you intend to stay near to Paddington, then use the tube. It is just as fast to central London and much cheaper. It also will be running on Christmas Day.
