During the holiday travel rush, all those lines, lines, lines, LINES will turn you into the Grinch in no time, especially if you're flying out of one of the 10 busiest airports.
Expedia recently ranked the 10 airports expected to be the busiest during the 2015 holiday season, based on the volume of origin and destination tickets purchased on Expedia for December 18 – December 31, 2015. When the ticket totals were combined, the results showed the usual horror houses, with LAX coming in first. Most likely because of its New Year's appeal, Las Vegas International came in second, while another major hub, Chicago's O'Hare, rounded out the top three.
Both JFK and LaGuardia made the top 10 as well, so beware that the perfect Home Alone 2 Christmas may come with a little less sweet pigeon lady, and a lot more waiting in line at security.
Check out the top 10 below, and then brace yourself for the inevitable.
