Coming & Going: Busy airports, AirTran-Southwest merger at BWI, more travel news

Coming & Going

Airport and busing news

Busy, busy airports

This holiday season, U.S. airports are packing them in like stuffing in a turkey. So where will travelers be tripping over one another?

Los Angeles takes the pie in this year’s report from Orbitz, bumping Chicago O’Hare to second place. Reagan National and Atlanta fell off the top 10 list, while Orlando climbed aboard, grabbing third place. New York’s threesome is there, as are San Francisco, Seattle, Boston and Denver. To avoid the crowds, you might relocate to San Jose or Santa Ana, Calif., or Maui — the three least-busy airports in the report.

The findings were based on arrivals and departures at 50 airports between Nov. 23 and Nov. 27.

Changes at BWI

Signs of the AirTran-Southwest merger continue to arrive, slowly but surely.

Starting Wednesday, AirTran will move from Concourse D to Terminal A/B at BWI Marshall to share digs with Southwest. AirTran flights will depart from Concourse B.

Bus moves

Starting Monday, DC2NY, the low-fare bus to New York, will no longer offer service from 14th Street, between H and I streets NW. It will continue to pick up and drop off in Dupont Circle (20th Street and Massachusetts Avenue NW) and at Union Station.
