ATLANTA (AP) - Heavy traffic and long lines weren't putting too much of a damper on the mood of holiday travelers at the world's busiest airport Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
Airline passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport met the ticket and security lines with upbeat resignation but were generally happy as they made their way to see family and friends.
Airport officials estimate that passenger traffic at Hartsfield-Jackson will increase three percent over last year. However, that increase will come with fewer flights and more crowed planes.
Transportation Security Administration officials said that improved screening procedures were resulting in wait times of less than 15 minutes during the early morning rush.
