Light Travel Day


Normally, I am on the earliest flight out of NY to get to Chicago on Thanksgiving Day. This morning, travelling with my 83 year old M-i-l, we took a later (9:15am) flight.

I braced myself for the crush at security and — nothing. We walked up, were the 3rd people online, and breezed through.

Southwest, like Jet Blue, invariably flies with jampacked aircraft — was surprisingly light. I’d estimate the plane was 10-15% unsold. That is unusual for Southwest and unheard of on a major travel day.

Anyone else have Turkeyday stories to share?
