If you're planning to fly to grandma's house for Thanksgiving dinner, you're going to have plenty of company.

The trade group, Airlines for America, estimates that a record 28.5 million people will fly during the holiday.

That would be a three-percent increase over last year.

This is due to a strong economy and low airfares.

The busiest day is expected to be Sunday, November 26, when most are expected to return from their holiday destinations.
