Ocean City High School students stuck in Philadelphia
Ocean City High School sent close to 80 students and chaperones to participate in Disney’s Cross Country Classic. The team was excited and all booked together on a Frontier Airlines flight. However, the team’s spirits were dashed after learning their flight was canceled due to weather, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
This led to the entire team scrambling to find replacement flights. However, as such a large group, they knew it would be hard to get everyone on the same flight. Frontier did not have any immediate availability that would get the students into Orlando on time. So, the team took to social media and tried to get anyone’s attention. They ended up in luck.

This is not the first time Delta has come to the rescue after students were stuck due to circumstances beyond their control. Although such incidents are unfortunate and can be quite stressful, hopefully, other airlines like Delta are up to the challenge of stepping in when they can.
What do you make of Delta’s actions? Were you a part of this very special flight? Let us know in the comments!
