Travel This Summer Expected to Be the Busiest Ever, and More

By JAIME FULLER, NYMag.com

Counting down the days until summer vacation? Join the club -- U.S. airlines are predicting the busiest season ever as everyone rushes to get out of town -- and take advantage of the improving economy. The trade group Airlines for America predicts that 222 million passengers will travel on U.S. airlines between June 1 and August 31, a 4.5 percent increase from last year, when around 210 million passengers used U.S. carriers. If you haven't planned your vacation yet and are looking to avoid the most crowded routes abroad, you may want to avoid Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan.

About 2.4 million people are expected to fly every day on U.S. airlines -- which are unsurprisingly excited about this development, given that low fuel prices mean that their profits are going to go even higher.

Take a look at the world's busiest airports:
