At KCI, things are flying right along

So far, so good at Kansas City International Airport.

The airport's flight information web site this morning is reporting very few flights facing any delays so far today -- a good start to the traditionally busy holiday flying season.

Despite a projected 10-percent decrease in the number of people flying, the Air Transport Association of America (ATA), an airline industry trade organization, said to expect full planes with the busiest flying days being Wednesday, Sunday and Monday.

"We plan to serve more than 175,000 passengers during the Wednesday through Monday holiday rush,” Justin Meyer, air service development manager for the Kansas City Aviation Department, said earlier this week. “If you are traveling during peak times, plan to arrive at the terminals at least one hour prior to departure, and 90 minutes for international flights. We encourage everyone to check in for their flights on-line and pack a little extra patience for their travels.”
