Streak of air scares rattle passengers ahead of the busiest holiday travel season on record

Americans are taking to the skies in record numbers this holiday season.

But if this past week is any indication, some of them could be in for a very bumpy ride.

On Tuesday, severe turbulence hit an American Airlines flight from South Korea to Dallas, terrifying, and even injuring some passengers, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

Other frightening problems ranged from engine trouble to very unruly passengers.
