According to the TSA, they will add more than 1,200 TSA officers and an additional 80 passenger screening teams over the holiday period.
Take a Pie with You – American Airlines
Imagine, you are eating a pie on a plane on Thanksgiving Day. Isn’t it great? American Airlines gives the opportunity to have a pie with you while boarding. The most important thing is the packing process. The pie needs to be in a box folded with a kitchen towel to keep the pie from sliding around. Please, notice that the pie needs to pass a security check with other possessions.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers. Wishing you the blessing of hope this Thanksgiving Day!
