Well, this is one way to make light of a terrible situation! As Delta Airlines continues to deal with a system outage that’s delaying and canceling hundreds of flights on Aug. 8, customers are taking to social media to share some hilarious memes about the mess. See them here!
Delta is under some major fire after a power outage caused at least 300 canceled flights after the airline’s check-in systems, website, airport screens, and even its smartphone app were down since the early morning of Aug. 8. As soon as the system was reported down and passengers were left stranded at airports around the country, angry tweets flooded in — but others found the humor in the situation, sharing some pretty hysterical “reasons” for the problems with memes on Twitter!
Customers ruthlessly mocked Delta for having system issues, insinuating that the problems were simply just a matter of something being unplugged. From the classic “Jonny pulls the plug” scene in Airplane! to a cat reaching for an unplugged cord, there were some awfully clever memes! See some of the best reactions below:

Although Delta has begun resuming flights, starting a “limited” resumption around 8:30 a.m. ET, clearly there are many people still left wondering when they’ll be able to fly. The airline has warned that “major delays and cancellations” will continue as they try to get through the 6,000 flights that were scheduled for the day, so surely many more passengers won’t be getting to their destinations on time. Looks like they should work on finding some more hilarious GIFs to pass the time!
