If this Thanksgiving is anything like last, about one out of 10 Americans will be traveling to spend time with family and friends. (Last year, AAA projected 42.5 million Americans would travel during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.)
While I’ve never had the personal “pleasure” of flying during the Thanksgiving holiday, I’ve certainly heard enough stories to keep me grounded whenever possible. Flight delays and lost luggage have a way of deflating the Thanksgiving spirit.
Now, I can’t solve the whole flight delay thing – after all, weather’s weather – but I can offer some hope for the weary traveler who’s ever lost a piece of luggage: consider shipping your luggage.
