Busy day for travelers at Joplin's airport


The day before Thanksgiving is the day of travel, for many.  The 3:30 PM inbound flight to Joplin came today without any delay.

American Airlines workers say the flight was full.  Flights go to and from Dallas.  Actions said it all; families are simply happy to have their loved ones home.  One man from Dallas picked up his daughter at the airport so that they could visit family in Lamar.

"I'm extremely excited," says Dallas resident Kevin Dockery.  "She's coming up!  She's going to spend the weekend with me!  We're all looking forward to it.  Her mom is outside, and we brought her dog up from Dallas.  So he's going to be real excited to see her, too!"

Passengers say the weather in Dallas this afternoon was a bit warmer than here in the Four States.  Thankfully, it was nothing to impact flights in the region.
