You better hurry up to book your holiday flight

Seats are going fast on flights around the holidays.{} According to the Wall Street Journal, there has been a dramatic increase in sales for flights for the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

Sales for those flights are already up more than 50% from a year ago.

According to WSJ, one possible reason for the uptick in sales may be that there are more prime holiday travels days this year.{} There are at least 11 prime holiday travel days.{} There were only 9 last year.

The extra prime travel days make it easier for families to travel farther distances and stay at their destinations longer.
