How busy are Easter flights?

I don't know the last time I flew on Easter Sunday so I am trying to gauge what to expect in terms of loads. Should I plan for the Sunday evening flights to be packed or empty?

Thanks.

Probably matters a lot on your origin/destination. Why don't you try a few dummy bookings for the same flight on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday? - this will give you a good indication of the demand on the various days

I've always found over Easter weekend flying to/from hubs like SFO, ORD:

Thursday & Friday - Heavy loads
Saturday - Light loads
Sunday - AM light, PM heavier, though not the usual Sunday rush
Monday - AM heavy, PM normal

hmmm, last Easter I was on a 6:45am SFO-ORD. It was a overbooked 744 so I got upgraded, lucky me. That plane was completely full, as was the rest of the airport to my surprise. My ORD-MHT wasnt exactly empty either, although not full to the brims like my earlier flight had been.
