Holiday travel for man both exciting, vexing after winning airline contest

ATLANTA (WPVI) -- A day of holiday travel for one airline passenger in Atlanta was both phenomenal - and frustrating.

It all started when Larry Kendrick got off the plane to major fanfare at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Music was playing inside, and there was a water cannon salute outside.

Local leaders were there, at the world's busiest airport to celebrate their 100 millionth passenger, Larry Kendrick of Boloxi, Mississippi.

Kendrick received a whole prize package including two round-trip tickets anywhere Delta flies, $500 and a new car.

The only rub is with all of the fanfare Kendrick missed his connecting flight.
