Last years travelers were much less, about 5% less than this years. This shows one of two things, people’s economics are getting better or they are just tired of staying home and not going anywhere.

Check with the airline’s website to make sure you know what to expect in the way of fees involving additional luggage, overweight luggage, and carrying perishables.
