If you’re flying for the Labor Day holiday, expect to be among a large crowd.
This year has seen larger crowds than recent years and Labor Day will be a record setter according to the trade group Airlines For America. They forecast that 17.5 million passengers will take to the skies between August 28 and September 3.
Expect the busiest travel day to be Friday the 30th, since it’s expected to have three million passengers.
Fares are low right now and despite flight cancellations due to the Boeing situation, the main airlines have added seats.
If you’re planning on flying, make sure to budget in the cost of extras like baggage, since those are how the airlines make their money.
