Mystics go on anti-Delta Twitter rant after being stranded in Atlanta

Wednesday July 22nd, 2015

The Mystics were on their way home to Washington, D.C., for the All-Star break after beating the Shock on Tuesday, but mechanical trouble delayed their flight, causing them to miss their connector in Atlanta, according to The Washington Post.

The team had called ahead to the Atlanta airport requesting the flight to D.C. be held until they arrived and also requested an escort so they could get to their next plane as quickly as possible, but Delta provided neither and the team was left in Georgia.

Stuck in the airport with no plane to take them home, the team jumped on Twitter and unleashed a series of very angry messages at the airline.

Delta did eventually respond to the team on Twitter, although it did not seem to understand the players' and coaches’ mood very well
