Turbulence for Thanksgiving 2022 air travel


Illinois Public Media

The holiday season is upon us, and throughout this week, according to AAA, more than 50 million Americans will be traveling for Thanksgiving. But the aviation industry is not what it was pre-pandemic. Air fare is more expensive than it was, and troubles with staffing and scheduling created an avalanche of troubles for travelers over the summer. There could be more changes which could impact on airports in places like Peoria, the Quad Cities, and Springfield.
