The number of passengers aboard airlines around the Thanksgiving holiday is forecast to be up about four percent from last year.
That's the word from a trade group for U.S. carriers. The Air Transport Association said it expects roughly 27 million passengers to fly over 12 days beginning this Friday, with planes
about 90 percent full.
The president of the group says some big airlines will add as many as 500 seasonal workers -some of whom had been furloughed - to usher fliers through airports, in an attempt to minimize travel hassles. The expected rise in holiday air travel comes in spite of
historic delays reported by airlines all year.
Last year, the trade group forecast a three percent increase in Thanksgiving passenger
demand, compared with a year earlier. More than 24 percent of flights arrived late through September and the industry's on-time performance through September was the worst since comparable data began being collected in 1995.
