In addition to communication. I used, social media can be used for entertainment and sanity.
The motto of the Boy Scouts. Which means to be mentally and physically prepared at all times.
There will be delays with airlines. When they occur. So I shouldn’t be surprised
Bring snacks and know where to get water.
For extended battery life. Keep a portable battery pack nearby.
I was prepared for these situations. It will make them less stressed.

Go to an airport lounge
Where you can relax and relieve stress? A lounge at the airport. It could be a good investment. Day pass if you are flying domestically.
Whenever you’re stranded at the airport. You might as well have a shower. A meal, and a place to relax.
Delta. For instance.Charges $59 for a single-visit pass.
A shower, food, and Wi-Fi are worth that price
Check to see if the airport has a public lounge. If an airline-specific lounge. It is not on the cards.
The amenities are provided by public lounges. They are similar to airline lounges. Smarter Travel says.
Choose an accommodation
Instead of staying at the airport. Book a hotel. Get offers on your gadgets.
If you’re not a fan of airport lounges. Or find them crowded. Book a hotel before. Stranded travelers like myself. Most of us take up the rooms.
In order to book a room. You should call the nearest hotel’s reservations line. While on your way there.
There’s no point in sleeping at your gate.
I know because I’ve done it.
Tweet about it!

Tweeting while traveling is another experience. That many people are familiar with. According to The Penny Hoarder.
You may get a faster response. If you mention a specific airline in a tweet. Then if you ask someone at the airport.
Let the company know about your experience. The officials should hear my voice. You have some kindness.
I made it sure that my tweet. Mention the airline. Use a specific hashtag.
Understand your rights
In the event of weather delays
Suddenly, I find myself stranded at the airport. No way to get home.
Know your rights as a passenger. Contact your airline on gadgets.
Unfortunately, not much.
Moreover. Airlines may compensate me. If they cancel or delay the flights.
The bad news is that they don’t pay for bad weather.
Visit convenience stores. To keep yourself occupied and comfortable.
