In the midst of a worsened economy and as LAX approaches one the busiest travel times of the year, they are announcing that they expect to see a 14.3% decrease in passengers in the airport between the "10-day Thanksgiving travel period from Friday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 30." That equals out to a quarter million people, but the 1.6 million expected to pass through is still a sizable amount. If you're traveling, plan ahead, especially if you're flying on the busiest days the airport will see: Friday, Nov. 21, Wednesday, Nov. 26, and Sunday, Nov. 30.
