As the busy holiday travel season gets underway, millions of travelers flock to the nation’s major airports. This comes as a big shock to some of the nation’s major airlines, which apparently had not been informed that the holidays can be a busy travel time.

How in God’s name is anybody supposed to plan for THAT?” — Dave Barry
Wheeeee what fun!
Translation: We were going to lose our asses with all those cheap tickets we sold for Christmas, so here’s a handy excuse to get rid of them.
Feel free to change my mind.
