Prepare for a week of chaotic holiday travel this Thanksgiving, according to a recent article from Yahoo.

Here are some highlights:

  • According to a report from AAA, this Thanksgiving, airports, train stations and roads will be the most crowded they’ve been since 2005 — with some 54 million Americans expected to travel more 50 miles.
  • Cars are the most popular method of travel for Thanksgiving, with 48.5 million people driving. That’s followed by 4.27 million people taking planes.
  • Airlines 4 America, an industry organization, estimates a substantial growth in air travel…from 29 million last year to 30.6 million this year.
  • In the U.S., the busiest day to fly hands down will be the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25, while Wednesday, Nov. 21 and Friday, Nov. 16 will likely also be jam packed.
