BOSTON (WBZ-AM) — Expert predictions that Sunday will be a record flying day for holiday travelers returning home from Thanksgiving festivities appears to be coming true-at least for Logan Airport in Boston. Travel prognosticators estimated that 3.06 million passengers would be hitting the runways today and from the look of photos taken by WBZ NewsRadio1030's Bill Marcus, a good portion of them are in line at ticket counters at Logan.

According to AAA, close to 54.3 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more away from home this holiday. That's a 4.8 percent increase over last year and the highest Thanksgiving travel volume since 2005, with 2.5 million more people taking to the nation’s roads, skies, rails and waterways. One global mobility analytics company is predicting urban travel times to be as much as four times longer than a normal trip.
