As thousands of travelers find themselves in the dark and stuck on the ground at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, many are taking to social media to share their experiences, ask questions and to get information from officials.
Food is becoming a problem for some.
Nikki Carrigna posted on Twitter a picture of what she’s describing as dinner after sitting on a grounded plan for more than three hours.
Constantine posted on Twitter that after sitting on a tarmac with his family, the plane ran out of water and started passing out diet coke.
My wife, 3 years old daughter and 6 month old son have been sitting on the tarmac since 2pm. Their plane is out of water and is now passing out Diet Coke. How do we not have a plan to transport those on planes to terminals? #atlairport— Constantine (@_sleepybrowns) December 17, 2017
Cellphone service is also becoming an issue. Also, as people’s phones die, they lose the ability to contact family members that could be waiting for them.
But, people are keeping their humor.
The airport and government officials are also using social media to spread the latest updates.
