How's Holiday Air Travel Going So Far?

Sun Nov 25, 2007 12:24 am

Just curious how everything is going for airlines, air travelers and the airports so far this holiday weekend. Anything out of the ordinary to report?

From most reports, the Thanksgiving rush has gone rather smoothly thus far......of course, now everyone has to get home. Reports were that pax were surprised by the lack of chaos at US airports over this very very busy holiday weekend.

A few factors helped:

1. Weather was not an issue at most major airports/hubs.

2. It seems that more pax than normal stretched the holiday weekend into a week-long holiday........thus pax began their travels last Saturday and Sunday and began returning home on Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) and Saturday. This took the pressure off of the peak days (Wednesday and Thursday morning, Sunday and Monday morning/afternoon.)

3. The airlines seemed better prepared this year with additional staff on hand.
