COLONIE - It's travel time, but in the span of an hour Wednesday morning, Albany International Airport went from Grand Central Station to a ghost town. It's an effort, no matter the transportation, to enjoy the holiday weekend.
The TSA and ambassador volunteers and the calming influence of a pet kept things moving.
Airlines for America projects a record 28.5 million passengers are expected to go through airports over a 12-day Thanksgiving stretch. That's well above last year.
If they drove, they'd find that the price of gas is up, $2.61 a gallon in the Capital Region. Nearly nine out of 10 of us are driving 50-miles or more to grandma's house.
