Remote work has made it easier for some to be more flexible with holiday travel plans. For most, it’s a positive change but can have its moments.
Thanksgiving was a holiday that used to feel rushed for Molly Himmelstein Hollenberg. Chained to desk jobs in New York City, first at the “Today” show and then JetBlue, she used to fly to Memphis, her hometown, Wednesday to Sunday to see her parents. “I was working in an office, and I only had so many vacation days,” she said.
The first two days were spent cooking and eating. By the time the holiday was over she had only two days left to relax before battling crowds at the airport again.
Her holiday felt more leisurely the second she boarded her Saturday evening flight. “There were no delays, it wasn’t full, it was a very comfortable experience,” she said. Plus, it was one of the cheapest flights she’s ever bought for this time of year. “Flights are so expensive around the holidays,” she said. “Being able to extend your trip for a few days on either side allows you to book a cheaper flight and not be in the airport on the busiest day of the year.”
