Travel Gem: Flight delayed and you’re all alone? A Twitter-based service is available to help. Just send a simple tweet to @Boarding with your airport code (JFK, LAX, CDG, …). Upon doing so, Boarding will send you a reply notifying you about other Twitter users in your location facing the same predicament.
Connecting with others in the same flight delay situation might offer you someone to commiserate with, have dinner with, or just talk with. Either way, it’s a way to pass the time a bit faster while you wait for your flight to board.
This service is provided at no cost and entails no registration or sign up process. All you need is a Twitter account in order to start connecting with individuals in your same position.
