Holiday Travel Roundup

Today is one of the busiest travel days of the year at Logan Airport. Almost 100 thousand people are expected to fly today.

In recent years, the airport has stepped up its efforts to deal with delays during the extended holiday travel week, which stretches from the Monday before Thanksgiving to the Monday after. WBUR's Bob Oakes reports on how Logan has geared up for this busy season.

Meanwhile, if you're stuck at the airport, or heading there wondering whether your flight is on time, there's now a new way to get information.

A 19-year-old entrepreneur and freshman at Babson College has created a new service that provides continuously updated flight status, by phone, about airlines and airports nationwide.

Seth Stolbun created 1-800-FLIGHTS and he stopped by WBUR to talk about the service before he flew home to Houston for his Thanksgiving break.

Audio for this story will be available on WBUR's web site later today.

This program aired on November 21, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
