Holiday rush at airports expected to cause delays

If you're looking to avoid traveling on the roads and heading for the skies, experts say it’s not going to be much better at airports. The Federal Aviation Administration reports today will be the busiest day for air travel since 2019.
Tracy Noble, a spokesperson AAA Club Alliance, advises travelers to pack their patience.
“Get there extra early that way you're not rushing around. Have your documents ready and download that airline app that way if there's changes to your flight time or your gate, you know immediately,” Noble suggests.
