Turkey Travel Up This Year

You'll need extra time and a little patience wouldn't hurt as you travel to your holiday destination this week.  Stepped up airport security during an already busy travel week means big delays at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport. According to AAA, an estimated 4.6 million people will fly this thanksgiving. But because of cutbacks ordered by congress there will be thousands of fewer federal screeners on the job. So how much time can you save going through a checkpoint? TSA screeners estimate if you set off the magnetometer and have to get a second check that tacks on an extra three minutes. Multiply that by just 10 people, and if you're at the end of the line, that means you're waiting an extra 30 minutes. To help avoid screening delays the TSA suggests leaving most things in your checked bag. Plus, Dress down for the flight, wearing sweatsuits and sneakers will also help speed up the process because you won't have to take anything off. This weekend promises to be busy on the roads as well. AAA expects 36 million people nationwide to travel 50 miles or more from their homes. That's a jump from the last two thanksgivings. AAA says gas prices and good fall weather are also contributing to the boost.
