If you, like millions of other Americans, are traveling this Thanksgiving, you may already be dreading it.
While the days surrounding Thanksgiving aren't the absolute worst for flight delays (those would be the busiest summer travel days in July and August), they're up there. And this year, U.S. airports may be worse than usual for holiday travel, as relatively cheaper airfares convince more people to fly rather than drive.
Some airports will be worse than others, of course, and RewardExpert has ranked the 45 busiest airports for Thanksgiving travel, from best to worst.

The worst airports for on-time performance, according to RewardExpert, were San Francisco, Newark Liberty, Oakland, William P. Hobby in Houston, and Sacramento. Here's the full list:
