US flight delays eased after a band of storms triggered thousands of cancellations and delays for beleaguered carriers at the start of a long holiday weekend.

More than 10,000 flights within or to the US were late or scrubbed Friday, according to tracking website FlightAware, a day after airline executives met with US transportation officials on how to stem flight disruptions.
