After all, the Thanksgiving weekend is often one of the busiest air travel seasons of the entire year.
And what about all those mis-routed and lost bags?
Many air travelers may wish to try re-routing their itineraries, just to avoid these super-busy spots. In the very least, passengers will want to plan ahead, to check flight times before departing for the airport. Travelers will be well advised to watch weather and news reports for local, connection and destination cities. And folks may opt to pack carry-on luggage, rather than checking bags (which usually costs more now anyway).
