Thanksgiving travel: 3 best airlines for flying economy

(Fox News) - As airlines look to cut costs and increase their profits, economy passengers are increasingly finding themselves with less leg room and fewer in-flight perks.

For those trying to maximize their perks but fly on a budget this holiday season, here are three of the best airlines for flying economy.
