Airport observers say Jacksonville International Airport was not as busy on Memorial Day as in years past as Tropical Storm Beryl through a curve into holiday travel.

Monday morning some flights, especially to connecting airports in the Southeast, experienced either cancellations or delays.  Most flights were on schedule according to the arrival and departure board.

"I have not been through one before," said Betty Putnam making reference to the tropical storm she and her husband experience on Sunday before flying back on Monday to Washington, D.C.

Flyers are encouraged to call ahead to check on Memorial Day  flights just  in case the weather take another turn for the worse.
