More than 24 million people are expected to fly this Thanksgiving weekend, about 150,000 more people than last year. This despite an increase in the price of airfare since Thanksgiving 2011.
And the crowds aren't just at the airport: Expect planes to be packed. Airplanes, on average, are expected to be nearly 90 percent full on the busiest day of one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.
But some airports will be busier than others.
