If you're planning to travel by plane for Thanksgiving, your options may be severely limited.USA Today reports that airlines are planning to cut about 3-thousand flights a day during the upcoming Thanksgiving travel season.

Fewer flights usually means more crowded planes, higher prices, and a thin margin of error if there are problems.

Marilyn Adams, Airline Reporter, says "It means that there is any glitch in your trips such as snow storm or a flight delay or a cancellation or you are bumped from your flight it will be harder to get to where you are going."

The cuts are coming across the country with the most coming at Chicago's O'Hare, Houston, and Dallas.

Airlines have been struggling to make money, but the cuts come just as the price of oil dipped to its lowest level in 12 years.
