Atlanta Airport Offering Flights to 'Black Panther's' Fictional Wakanda
Pack the vibranium and head out.
To celebrate the Black Panther film phenomenon, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta is now (jokingly) offering flights to Wakanda, the fictional African nation featured in the Marvel movie.

"The bags are packed #WakandaForever," the official airport account recently tweeted along with a photo for the Wakanda gate.
The nod to the Black Panther film went over well, with thousands of users retweeting the post and liking it.
The Ryan Coogler film debuted to a record-shattering $242 million at the Presidents Day box office. Starring Chadwick Boseman as the title character, the superhero film surpassed last year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($241.6 million) to earn more in its first four days than any movie in history at the North American box office other than 2016's Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($288.1 million).
Black Panther also marks the biggest opening in history for an African-American director. The film also holds the highest Rotten Tomatoes critics ranking of any Marvel film: 97 percent.
