Airline seats may be harder to get after cuts

Seats maybe tough to find come Thanksgiving and Christmas -- especially for those travelling to popular vacation spots.

The airlines are cutting back flights because of high fuel prices.

According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, airlines at O'Hare and Midway will cut their flights by a combined six percent in November.

That means at least 300,000 fewer seats for sale from Chicago's airports in that month alone. Expect that number to rise as United and American Airlines make deeper cuts later this fall.
