ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta’s normally bustling airport was quiet Monday with many flights canceled because of Hurricane Sandy.
Airport spokeswoman Myrna White says airlines have been good about communicating with passengers so that people haven’t been showing up if their flights are canceled.
In the atrium waiting area of the airport, near one of the security checkpoints, a handful of stranded flyers sat around Monday morning. Some snoozed in squishy chairs, while others passed the time reading, playing on their phones or using their laptop computers.
Eric Danielson was traveling from San Francisco to Virginia to start a new job. What was supposed to be a two-hour layover in Atlanta looked likely to stretch into a second day as airline officials told him Tuesday was likely the earliest he’d be able to fly.
