Many fliers packed into Charlotte Douglas Airport Thursday morning to get an early start on post-Christmas travel.
Eyewitness News found the crowds at the airport to be about as big as the crowds on Christmas Eve morning. Travelers said flying out Thursday morning fit well with their schedules and was cheaper than other ticket prices. They hoped to avoid the delays and cancellations many people encountered earlier in the week because of a major winter storm in the northeastern United States.
