One Word Sunday is a blogging challenge hosted by Debbie Smyth at Travel With Intent. This week’s challenge is “giggle or gaggle.” One definition of gaggle is a disorderly or noisy group of people. These photos of passengers at Narita Airport waiting for a flight from Tokyo, Japan to Shanghai, China fit that definition to a tee.

Our China Eastern flight in August 2019 was repeatedly delayed by Typhoon Lekima until finally being cancelled late at night. China Eastern provided no assistance with rebooking or accommodations. Things got ugly. The airport had to turn out the lights to get the passengers to leave the gate.
