Olympian Lolo Jones was among those frustrated passengers stuck on planes Sunday during a massive power outage at the Atlanta airport. And though the champion hurdler and bobsledder was hungry, Jones found humor in the ordeal.
“Hi yes I would like to order a pizza the delivery address is the Atlanta airport runway,” Jones posted on her Twitter page. “Landed hours ago from Germany can’t get off plane bc customs and outage but could customs clear a pizza to come on board?”
After flying 10 hours from Germany, Jones posted that she was stuck on a plane five hours longer, along with bobsledder Jazmine Fenlator. Jones said she and Fenlator, who has competed on the U.S. and Jamaica bobsled teams, would have to share a candy bar. But otherwise, Jones remained positive in her social media posts.
“At least I’m still on the plane,” Jones also Tweeted. “Vibe is still ok although the hungrier I get the 5 month year old down the row is starting to look like veal. Pics inside the Atlanta airport looks like zombie apocalypse started.”
