Many People Travelling This Holiday Weekend
The Thanksgiving holiday-period is traditionally the busiest travel time of the year. And this year, it's expected to be at the highest level since before the 9-11 attacks. It's estimated that more than 37-million Americans will travel 50-miles or more from home this week. And about 4 1/2-million of them will travel by air.
Lincoln air travel is up about 7 or 8 per cent, compared to last year and here it's suggested that you arrive at least an hour before your flight leaves. You may want to give yourself a little more time at larger airports. Don't pack wrapped gifts, and put all of your undeveloped film and cameras with film in your carry-on luggage. The screening equipment for 'checked' baggage could damage film. And be prepared to take off your shoes at the inspection-point, even if they're sneakers.
