The Worst Day To Fly Isn't When You Think

You've probably long believed that the day before Thanksgiving is the worst day of the year to fly, or at least one of the worst days to fly. Right?


In fact, the day before Thanksgiving was only the 27th-worst day to fly in 2013, and there are a number of summer days that beat it out in terms of airport crowding. But one particularly terrible day has it beat by a LOT. (Hint: it's the other day right around Thanksgiving...)

If you haven't booked your holiday travel yet, do it now, and avoid both the day before and the Sunday after Thanksgiving if you can.

But don't sweat too much: Flights are cheaper on the whole this season, and that's one more thing to be thankful for.
