A smooth trip home for Thanksgiving travelers
By Phuong Le, Associated Press

Travelers heading home after the long Thanksgiving weekend had another reason to be thankful on Sunday: favorable weather and few airport delays reported on what is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year.

Although there was little elbow room on packed buses, trains and airplanes, travel appeared to be running smoothly as millions of people trekked home after feasting with family and friends.

Experts had predicted that travel this season would be up slightly from last year. According to AAA's yearly Thanksgiving travel analysis, some 43.6 million Americans were expected to journey 50 miles or more between Wednesday and Sunday, and more of them were driving while fewer were flying.
