The holiday travel rush is on as tens of thousands of San Diegans are on the move to get home just in time for Christmas. An anticipated 50,000 people are expected to travel through Lindbergh field each day from Christmas through New Years.
And while the weather may not be frightful here in San Diego, inclement weather in many parts of the nation is contributing to delays. On Monday morning, travelers had to deal with a handful of early morning cancellations and at least a dozen delays from Detroit, Houston, San Francisco and Las Vegas, among others.
The Airport Authority introduced their new dual-level roadway at Terminal 2, which separates departures and arrivals. It seemed to ease curbside congestion during the Christmas rush.
Adding to the holiday cheer, carolers and quartets dressed in Victorian garb sang to passers-by to bolster the holiday spirit.
TSA is asking if you don't have to wrap your gifts, try not to do so ahead of time. Officers may have to unwrap those packages to take a closer look. Travelers are advised to arrive 90 minutes ahead of domestic flights and 2.5 hours before international flights.
