Post-Thanksgiving rush? Few headaches for fliers on Sunday

The Sunday after Thanksgiving is one of the USA’s busiest days for air travel, but fliers faced few major problems.

Only about 100 flights had been canceled nationwide as of 5 p.m. ET, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. About 1,800 delays had been reported across the U.S., though that figure was moderate on a nationwide basis and did not represent a major disruption.

Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) had the worst go of things Sunday. With fog being reported there earlier in the day, about 15% of the airport’s flights were running behind schedule as of 5 p.m. ET, according to FlightAware. About 43 flights had been canceled, or about 2% of the day's total schedule there, according to FlightAware.

The Federal Aviation Administration also reported minor to moderate delays at MSP earlier Sunday because of the poor visibility there. Elsewhere, the FAA said off-and-on delays affected Newark Liberty (strong winds), New York LaGuardia (flight volume), Las Vegas (flight volume) and Los Angeles (flight volume and runway construction) at some point on Sunday.

With hundreds of thousands of Thanksgiving travelers making their way home before the start of the work week, Sunday is one of the busiest days of the year at many U.S. airports.

Ahead of the holiday, passenger counts began to rise this past Tuesday. The rush peaked on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, with passenger levels dropping off significantly on Thanksgiving day (Thursday) and Friday. Passenger volumes began ramping up again on Saturday toward another peak Sunday.
