This is What’s Trending Today…

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the world. With more than 2,500 flights coming and going each day, it serves over 100 million passengers a year.

亚特兰大哈兹菲尔德-杰克逊国际机场是全球最繁忙的机场,该机场每天有超过2500个航班进出,每年为超过1亿旅客提供服务。

So what is the latest offering? A nonstop flight to Wakanda.

那么该机场新开通了什么航班?那就是直飞瓦坎达王国的航班。

If you have not heard of Wakanda, you probably have not seen Black Panther, the new superhero movie from Marvel Comics. The film tells the story of an imaginary African nation called Wakanda. It is the home of the Black Panther himself, Prince T’Challa.

如果你没有听说过瓦坎达,你大概还没有看过漫威漫画最新出品的超级英雄电影《黑豹》(Black Panther)。这部电影讲述了虚构的非洲国家瓦坎达的故事。这是黑豹,也就是特查拉王子的故乡。

In its opening weekend, Black Panther earned a record-setting $235 million in American theaters. It is the number-one movie in the world.

《黑豹》在美国影院创下了2.35亿美元的首映周末票房纪录,这也是全球最高的记录。

Black Panther has connections to Atlanta, Georgia; part of it was filmed in the city.

《黑豹》跟佐治亚州的亚特兰大市存在联系,该电影有一部分内容是在该市拍摄。

Earlier this week, the Atlanta Airport decided to have some fun. It tweeted a photograph of a departure gate sign that read: “Wakanda. 7:30 p.m.” It also wrote, “The bags are packed! #WakandaForever.”

本周早些时候,亚特兰大机场决定搞怪一下。它在推特上发布了一张登机口标志的照片,上面写道:“瓦坎达,下午7点半起飞。”后面还写着:“行李已打包!#瓦坎达万岁。”

In the film, Wakanda is a developed, technologically advanced country. It is both extremely modern and deeply traditional. It has never belonged to a foreign power.

在电影中,瓦坎达是一个技术先进的发达国家。它既非常现代又极度传统,并且从未被外国势力控制。

Many Twitter users seemed extremely excited to book a one-way flight to Wakanda.

很多推特用户看上去非常兴奋地要预定一张飞往瓦坎达的单程航班。

Some people had questions about the trip, including the food and entertainment available. The Atlanta Airport responded to many of their requests.

一些人提出了一些行程疑问,包括行程中可以提供的食物和娱乐。亚特兰大机场回应了他们的很多咨询。

Even actor Lupita Nyong’o, who stars in Black Panther, wanted to know what films would be shown en route to Wakanda.

即使是出演《黑豹》的演员露皮塔·尼永奥(Lupita Nyong’o)也想知道在飞往瓦坎达的旅途中会看到什么电影。

Her movie suggestions were a play on real movie titles, but changed to include Black Panther names and characters.

她建议播放一部真实存在的电影,但是改为包括《黑豹》的名字和角色。

The airport’s idea to announce a fictional flight from Atlanta to Wakanda reportedly came from Atlanta-area chef Darius Williams.

据报道,该机场宣布从亚特兰大飞往瓦坎达这一虚构航班的创意来自于亚特兰大地区的厨师达瑞斯·威廉姆斯(Darius Williams)。

A video on Facebook shows Williams asking an airline employee to help him book a flight from Atlanta to Wakanda. The employee treated him with respect...but was understandably confused!

Facebook网站上的一则视频显示,威廉姆斯要求一位航空公司职员帮他预定从亚特兰大飞往瓦坎达的航班。该员工对他很尊重,但是理所当然地非常困惑。
