The year in air travel: packed planes and more perks — for a price
In 2015, travelers should continue to expect jam-packed planes and high fares.
It's been a good year for commercial airlines.
With the economy recovering, more people are getting on planes and flying for both business and pleasure. And the cost of fuel, one of the airlines' biggest expenses, is dropping.
But as anyone traveling for the holidays can tell you, airfares remain high. And many frequent fliers at Chicago O'Hare International Airport say they wouldn't give the airlines perfect grades this year.
