As millions of Americans take to the skies for the Thanksgiving holiday, they will inevitably hit crowds and flight delays. However, according to a new study, travelers can expect more days of the year to look like the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, notorious for being the busiest travel day of the year.
The U.S. Travel Association study found that 27 of the 30 major U.S. airports will experience Thanksgiving-like congestion two days a week within the next decade.
"If you want to see what the infrastructure problem looks like in this country, look no further than the Wednesday before Thanksgiving," Erik Hansen, the U.S. Travel Association's senior director of domestic policy, said in an interview with CNBC's "Street Signs" on Tuesday.
"Our airports are jam-packed. There are flight delays and cancellations. You're going to be waiting in more lines. There is going to be traffic on the way to the airport."
