New study from KAYAK reveals 70% of Americans planning to travel by flight this holiday season are stressed out about busy airports, flight delays or long lines
STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today is expected to be the busiest Thanksgiving travel day at airports across the country, according to KAYAK's search data, and with that comes the anxiety and stress of having to navigate crowded airports.
