Thanksgiving weekend, November 2009, turned out to be a bit of a turkey, actually. In fact, according to the AAA, 2.3 million Americans flew over the holiday weekend. Now compare that to the year 2000 (which was a banner year for the economy BTW), it’s a big drop — 62 percent ! That’s right, in 2000 three times, or almost 6.2 million people flew. AAA also says that this year, an estimated 33 million would be driving. Have you checked your traffic yet today?
