Holiday Travelers Benefit from Spread-Out Season

NEW YORK (AP) - As travelers take to the road, air and rail Thursday, they should keep one thing in mind: It could be worse.

Steve Kent scoffed at lines Thursday morning at New York's LaGuardia Airport as he got ready to fly to Denver on a family ski trip. He says Thanksgiving travel is a lot harder.

AAA spokesman Troy Green says holiday travel for Christmas and New Year's is expected to be up about 3 percent this year, with more than 92 million people planning to go more than 50 miles.

But unlike Thanksgiving, when there's one massive travel day, it's a bit more spread out.

While there's a rush now to make it to Grandma's house by Christmas, Green says millions of people have already gotten where they're going.
