MEDFORD, OR-- Today at the airport in Medford everyone Newswatch 12's Leah Thompson spoke to had something to be excited for.
Macy Berashear a traveller says "I'm headed to Tulsa, Oklahoma."
Steve Susland also a traveller passenger says "Today we are going to Arizona."
For some that means going home.
Macy says "I'm flying back home for the holidays week/ week and a half."
and for others that means going somewhere different for the holiday this year.
Steve says "Warmer Christmas."
Everyone Leah spoke to today was in good spirits. It was surprising because a number of flights were delayed and a few cancelled. Macy Bearshers's flight was delayed today and you could never tell with how excited she was to go home.
Macy says, "I'm most looking forward to eating. As an adult you don't really care about the presents anymore. It's all about the food."
The airport administrative office says they are expecting more people flying in and out of the airport this year compared to last year. With rain and snow chances in the forecast this weekend more cancellations and delays are very possible.
Macy says "I'm most excited about seeing my family members."
So whether you are driving to family's home an hour away this holiday or flying across the country... be prepared for any last minute hiccups or delays.
