Atlanta Airport Offers Flights To 'Wakanda'

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is getting into the Marvel movie spirit by jokingly offering flights to Wakanda -- the fictional country from Black Panther .

The airport tweeted out a digitally altered image of gate T3 showing its destination as Wakanda, the kingdom ruled by King T'Challa, aka the Black Panther, in the eponymous superhero film.

"The bags are packed #WakandaForever," the airport tweeted .

The tweet drew the attention of star Lupita Nyong'o , who jumped on the joke with her own string of puns based on character names from the film.

"Apart from La Femme Nakia, what else is on the in-flight entertainment? T'Challa's Angels, M'Baku To The Future, Shuri's Gotta Have It, Killmonger Bill, W'Kabi In The Woods...?" she wrote.
