(KSL News) -- Millions of Americans are heading home after a long weekend in what's called "the great return." The lines have been long at some of the nation's biggest airports, but most aren't reporting many problems.

Los Angeles International said all flights were running on time around late morning. On the East coast, a spokesman said it was "smooth sailing" at Baltimore-Washington International. Things at Salt Lake International have been extremely quiet for what's considered the busiest travel day of the season.

Those trying to leave Utah had to stand in small lines, but there were no real problems checking in at the counters or going through security.

Ashley Bailey, Holiday Traveler: "It's quiet. It doesn't seem as busy as we thought it was going to be for the holiday weekend."

Utah's highways have also been less crowded this afternoon. Traffic flowed smoothly with relatively few cars hitting the road. Of course, things could pick up as the night goes on for anyone waiting until the last minute to get back.
