ST. LOUIS (AP) - Lambert Airport officials in St. Louis are urging passengers traveling through the airport this weekend to show up early and bring their patience.

Airport leaders expect a 10 percent to 15 percent increase in daily passengers starting Friday and continuing through Nov. 25. Thanksgiving is traditionally one of the busiest travel holidays of the year.

Passengers are urged to show up at least 90 minutes ahead of a scheduled flight. Liquids must be in bottles of 3.4 ounces or less that are placed in quart-sized, clear, plastic zip-top bags. Passengers are also told not to bring along wrapped holiday gifts.
