Chick-Fil-A Opened On Sunday To Feed Thousands Of Stranded Travelers In Atlanta


An electrical fire caused a major power outage in the busiest airport in America last night causing over 1,100 flights to be grounded or cancelled and leaving 30,000 passengers in the dark. Travelers were stranded on runways, in dark terminals and even in the airport’s underground shuttle system. While they waited for power to be restored, Chick-fil-A, who notoriously closes on Sundays, fired up their burners and fed the stranded passengers.

It must be some kind of Christmas miracle.

The city of Atlanta offered a shuttle service to a local convention center where passengers were provided free Chick-fil-A and a place to stay. Chick-fil-A did them one better, delivering truck-loads of sandwiches to passengers as the lights came back on around midnight.

This is not the first time the chicken chain has stepped up in a crises. In the past they have gone above and beyond, even to the point of rescuing customers during Hurricane Harvey.

You can say thank you, but really, it’s their pleasure.
