I was flying out of ATL this morning several things caught my attention:
1) The fire alarm at the other end of the (D) concourse kept going off... I think it went off a total of three times during the time I was waiting for the flight (no one really seemed to pay any attention at all to it, and since the strobes in our part of the concourse weren't going off I wasn't about to let myself on to the ramp*)
2) After we boarded and the jetway was pulled back, the captain made an announcement like "Well, folks, we've been told that there was a little bit of confusion in the bag room...whatever that means...it's been sorted out, but the bags from this flight were there. They're on their way now, but given the size of the airport we're going to hold tight for about ten minutes"
3) After landing in CLE, the woman behind me commented that when she was going through security they "made an announcement about an emergency of some kind and we should just stay where we were, but I figured whatever it was I'd be safer underground, so I just kept going"
Anyone know what was going on? Were any of the events related?
[*- as I told a coworker on the same flight, "An airport is the one place I won't evacuate unless someone tells me to"]
