Possible Captions For This Photograph

oticing the airplane operated by United Airlines in the background on the tarmac awaiting its turn to take off on the runway at the international airport in Atlanta, here are three possible captions for this photograph as could have been possibly thought or said by at least one person aboard that airplane:

“Times must be really hard for Delta Air Lines. They cannot even afford to tow their airplanes with a tow tractor.”

“Wow. Those employees of Delta Air Lines are so dedicated to their company and customers that they will personally tow the aircraft to the gate themselves.”

“Aw — why do passengers of Delta Air Lines get to have all the fun? Flight attendant, when we land in Chicago, can we pull this airplane? Please?!?

How about this for a caption, disregarding that United Airlines airplane in the background?

“Folks, this is your captain speaking. We are experiencing a mechanical difficulty. We will need everyone to deplane, grab a part of the rope, and pull the airplane into the gate. We hope you enjoyed your flight and we hope to see you again on a future flight. Flight attendant, please get me some popcorn.”

Now it is time for you to take a short break and have a little fun: can you think of a clever caption which captures this moment? If so, please post it in the Comments section below.

    Folks, this is your Captain speaking. We just got to our gate, but as is often the case, the gate crew is nowhere to be seen at the moment. Here are our options: we can wait for them to arrive which could take a while, or I can pull out a spare rope from my carry-on so that you guys can tow the airplane to the gate.
