Best and Worst Days to Fly for Thanksgiving

When it comes to Thanksgiving air travel, not all days are created equal. Fares and crowds vary widely during the Thanksgiving travel period of Friday, Nov. 18 through Tuesday, Nov. 29 (as defined by Airlines for America, an industry trade group).

Fares directly reflect crowds. More crowds, higher fares.

According to the website FareCompare, travelers who choose to fly on Nov. 23 and Nov. 27 could pay as much as 65 percent more per round-trip ticket compared to those flying on Thanksgiving Day and returning on Tuesday, Nov. 29.
