It is estimated that almost 11% of all Americans will travel by plane this Thanksgiving holiday. That's around 27 million people in the skies. Mind blown. Many will travel and bring a Thanksgiving dinner with them. What? Are there no turkeys in Poughkeepsie? No yams in Yakima? No stuffing in Stickney?

Whatever the reason people will travel with all the fixings, there are some things you may take on a plane and some you cannot - or at least will have to check. Which means there may be a lot of cranberry sauce and gravy in the luggage hold.
