O’Hare International Airport, according to Orbitz, will be the busiest in the nation by far over Thanksgiving, beating the second-busiest–Los Angeles’ LAX–by 20-percent.

The company looked at the top 100 US airports.

The findings are based on the number of flights between November 23rd and 29th.

Boston Logan comes in 3rd, followed by New York’s LaGuardia and San Francisco International.

If Midway is an option, you might find less hassle there.

It’s among the least busy alternatives.

The Air Transport Association says travel will be up 3.5 percent over last year and says 24 million people will be on domestic flights.
