— -- Get ready for long lines at the airport tomorrow.

Or, maybe not.

The commonly held "wisdom" is that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year. That's not true, at least when it comes to flying.

When it comes to cars, the data's not as clear. AAA told ABC News that more drivers will be on the road on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving than the Memorial Day and July 4th holidays.
