    This year, Thanksgiving fliers may be wishing they had a sleigh.

    Travelers can expect airports to be busier, planes fuller than ever and fares higher this Thanksgiving, according to a main trade group representing U.S. airlines.  Airlines for America forecasting nearly 24 million travelers will take to the skies from Friday, November 16th through the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, up narrowly from last year.

    The trade group also says planes are expected to be close to 90% full for the busiest days around the holiday - that would be a record.  Flights more packed because there are fewer of them.
