DENVER -- Denver International Airport is expecting 1.1 million travelers to pass through the airport this Thanksgiving week with most traveling Tuesday, Wednesday and next Sunday.

And, there’s a possibility of snow in the forecast Tuesday.

During last week's first snow of the season, United Airlines experienced long delays because some deicing equipment wasn't working. The airport received 1.7 inches of snow, officially.

United Airlines said in a statement Sunday, "We are working closely with our service partner to ensure that all of our passengers have a safe and on-time travel experience."

DIA says it could break a record next Sunday, Nov. 27, as the all-time busiest travel day ever at the airport.
