I applaud a passenger who came prepared to face an extended Delta Air Lines flight delay in Orlando…he brought the mattress along.
Delta Passenger Sets Up Mattress In Gate Area At Orlando
A fellow passenger captured the picture above, at the gate for Delta 9897, a special section from Orland0 (MCO) to Atlanta (ATL) on Sunday night operated by an Airbus A330-300. Orlando has recently faced weather delays and fuel shortages, leading to a number of flight delays.

Certainly, cots, sleeping bags, and even some blow-up mattresses or hammocks are not unheard of at airports, but this is a huge one and it looks far more comfortable than trying to sleep on chairs or on the floor.

I’m not about to start carrying an air mattress, but I am impressed at the foresight of the passenger. We have one of these mattresses at home and the whole thing can fit into a carry-on bag. It’s actually not a bad idea if you are a budget traveler wanting to minimize hotel expenses…
