How bad is air travel on Thanksgiving weekend? That's my biggest fear. We usually avoid it like the plague.

Thanks.

I never fly to a cruise destination the same day the ship sails. However, the Sunday after Thanksgiving is one of the busiest (and most expensive) days you could fly, and I would avoid it at all costs.

I checked Kayak for Thanksgiving weekend in 2013. Thursday and Friday were less expensive than Saturday, and all were less expensive than flying Sunday.

We are flying to Orlando this year on Nov. 27 and returning Dec. 1st. We got our tickets in June with Southwest and while the fares were a bit higher than normal, they were not outrageous.

Big spoon or little spoon?

What time to we have to be on the ship? I'm in Cocoa that morning for the Spacecoast marathon or half marathon, so I need to make sure I can be done with the run (and cleanup) with time to board.

Thanks. We always fly in at least one day early - and I don't think I'd be comfortable that weekend without a two day buffer.

Possibly, but it will depend on availability and the price will be based on the price as of the day they are added.

Travel on that thanksgiving weekend is always very expensive and very crowded. You have to hope the weather is good or you could be in big trouble when you have delays. I am not sure air travel was considered when the dates where chosen.

No - if the price has increased, additional passengers will pay the higher price.

There are a number of factors that are considered when choosing a date, including airfare, other commitments, cruise schedules and pricing. The best date was chosen once all of these factors were weighed out. In most markets, flying on the Friday or Saturday is cheaper than the Thursday or Sunday. Unfortunately we will never be able to choose the perfect date for all scenarios.

Tracey, and crew, please do not misunderstand me I know you guys have a lot to consider when you pick a date for such a big event as the podcast. I am sure you weigh all things out. you guys are great at doing this. I was just pointing out that it is expensive but I just add that in as a cost of going on a great trip and look forward to it already.
