ATLANTA (AP) - A spokeswoman for the world's busiest airport says pre-Thanksgiving travel is going smoothly so far.
Atlanta airport spokeswoman Myrna White said no problems had been reported Wednesday.
With a sluggish economic recovery, some travelers were feeling the pinch of pricy airline tickets but weren't willing to give up a chance to celebrate the holiday with family and friends.
Atlanta native Shawnette Bryant has been on a temporary work assignment in Syracuse, N.Y., for the last 14 months. By the time she was able to finalize her plans about three weeks ago, the ticket price had climbed to nearly $300.
She's staying in town for about a week and a half because she might not make it back for Christmas unless she can find a deal on airfare.
