Airlines Expect Fewer Holiday Passengers

NEW YORK, Dec. 20 (UPI) — U.S. airlines are expecting 1 percent fewer passengers this holiday season compared with 2010, a trade group said.

Airlines for America forecast 43.3 million passengers will board planes in a 21-day stretch defined as holiday traveling, CNN reported Tuesday.

The drop from 2010 to 2011 is about 20,000 passengers, but that does not leave many with extra space on flights.

The group said 85 percent of the flights through the holiday stretch would have every seat sold.
