LAX to be Busiest U.S. Airport over Thanksgiving
The news shouldn't be surprising, but it's a good reminder for travelers to plan ahead. Travel website Orbitz looked at its flight bookings for the top 50 U.S. airports and found that Los Angeles International Airport tops the list, switching spots with Chicago O'Hare, which held the title last year. Rounding out the top four is Orlando International, an airport that didn't even make the top ten in 2010, and San Francisco International.
Not all is lost for California's busiest metros. Mineta San Jose International and John Wayne Airport in Orange County both made another list: The Top 10 Least Busy Thanksgiving Airports. Those two made the same list in 2010, but were also in the company of Oakland International, which apparently will be busier this year.
