A man’s trip back home to Tennessee was delayed because of a United Airlines flight delay, so he spent the night in Chicago. He woke up today and found that his experience had been turned into an amazing story, complete with photos and videos.

The “ord airport” is a United Airlines flight that was stuck at Chicago O’Hare Airport for an epic overnight adventure. The passengers were given food, drinks, and even a movie to watch while they waited.

An overnight adventure for a United passenger stuck at Chicago O’Hare.

For three months, one guy lived inside Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Allison Robicelli, like in a Richard Linklater film, had just one night, and she made the most of it.

If I were wealthy, I’d purchase airline tickets but never go anyplace so I could spend the night at the airport. I’m hanging out with the housekeeping workers, skipping along the moving sidewalk and pretending to be a fort in hidden nooks. This is the very best.

Passengers who miss their flight may be placed in a hotel by their airline, which may be more uncomfortable than staying at the airport. But it’s not as bad as sleeping at the O’Hare airport. As a result, Robicelli remained up all night. She went on a quest.

In Terminal 2, I discovered a “hidden” entrance! It’s a public service passageway, but the lighting is poor, making it easy to go through. That sign is only visible if you are searching for it. This location would be ideal for a manhunt basecamp. pic.twitter.com/KJjHRubXiB

She walked back and forth on the moving walkway. And the other way around. And the other way around. There should be a plaque explaining the hidden history of the tunnel connecting the United concourses.

For almost 20 minutes, no one came into the corridor, so I simply rode back and forth on the moving walkways and watched the spectacle. pic.twitter.com/s210OfmkcU

She eventually becomes irrational.

She arrived in Baltimore the next morning, after McDonalds had opened (she hoped to have a McRib for breakfast). Along the way, she performed photo shoots and kept track of her preferences at various airport concourses. Terminal 3 is her favorite. However, there is a significant difference between flying out of O’Hare during the day when you have access to Tortas Frontera and flying out of O’Hare overnight when you don’t.

Even though Al Capone’s connection to the O’Hare airport is immortalized airside in the area between terminals 1 and 2, she didn’t seem to notice it when she was there.

When you’re trapped at the airport for the night, you have two options.

  1. Make sure you purchased your ticket with a credit card that has trip delay insurance, and then charge them for your accommodation, transportation, and food. The Hilton is linked to O’Hare and just a short walk away.
  2. Make the most of your existence. A traveller who was stranded at the airport for the night created a music video.

The first technique entails rest and relaxation, while the second entails getting popular on social media.
