A small number of flights at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks were canceled or delayed because of Winter Storm Genny. 

However, the airport said on Thursday that airline schedules were back on track.

Some people were just hoping they’ll be able to leave early on Thursday. They were closely monitoring the weather system from the airport.

"I was checking like every 20 minutes so I didn't really sleep last night," said Andrew Russo of Springfield, MA.

Forty percent of flights were canceled on Wednesday due to Winter Storm Genny and weather conditions in other areas. 

If travelers are supposed to travel on Thursday, they are still advised to check with their airlines to see if there are any potential re-booking options before heading to the airport. Several airlines issued travel waivers. 

"I needed to get to Jacksonville because my brother’s 70th birthday party on Friday so I wanted to make sure I’d be there. I called Delta and they had a flight! So I canceled Jet Blue for Friday and now I’m going out [Thursday] morning at 7:10," said Pat Menefee of Hartford.

Russo said he had been keeping a close eye on the forecast all week He was hoping he wouldn't run into any problems before his trip to Mexico.

"Worked out okay so far, so hopefully it keeps going good until I get there tonight," he said.

Other people told Channel 3 contemplated arriving on Wednesday night and staying over. They weren't sure what the road conditions would be like.

"We had some snow down in Madison, some ice. A couple of inches, it was pretty easy," said Rod Bascom of Madison. "I think the hotels around here were booked so a lot of people were a little nervous about all the snow we were supposed to get."
