Ominous Delta Confirmation Number Tells Passenger She’s A ‘GONER’ [Pic]

Delta passenger

Delta airlines accidentally told a passenger that she was a GONER, via the confirmation number on her ticket.

Kathryn Stockett, the best-selling author of The Help, checked her boarding pass and was alarmed to have received the ominous message, which read Goner5.

Stockett’s novel sold millions of copies across the world when it was published in 2009.

It spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, and word-of-mouth made it a must read.

Stockett managed to find the confirmation number amusing rather than a sign from God that she shouldn’t board the airplane.

She even found time to upload a picture of her ticket to her Twitter account.

Stockett added the picture, @kathyrnstockett, with the following:

The post soon went viral, and Delta even found it necessary to respond to the confirmation debacle, taking to their own Twitter account, @DeltaAssist, to write:

They then added:

Before concluding:

Stockett managed to overcome all of the odds against her flight, and landed safely at her destination.

A cinematic version of her book was released in 2011, and even managed to win four Academy Award nominations, one of which was won by Octavia Spencer, who picked up the best supporting actress gong. The Help was published in 42 languages, and it has sold ten million editions.
