Between nasty crowds and inclement weather, traveling by plane can get unbearably hectic amidst the holiday season. Therefore, facing a delayed — or even a canceled flight — can be practically inevitable. And since there's nothing worse than having to wait hours on end for your plane to take off, Burger King is giving delayed flyers the ultimate consolation prize this holiday season: free food.
So when your airline delivers that devastating update, don't sit there in misery— here's how to get yourself a free Impossible Whopper from Burger King. You may not get into your destination on time, but at least you'll have that complementary plant-based sammie waiting for you.
How to get free Burger King with the "Delay Your Way" promotion:
Like I said, Burger King is offering a free Impossible Whopper for those facing a delay this holiday season, according to a press release called the "Delay Your Way" promotion. While a delayed flight isn't exactly ideal, it definitely makes the best of a crappy situation.
And luckily, getting your free sandwich is simple — those traveling between Dec. 18 and Dec. 30 from any airport in the U.S. can download the BK app via the App Store or Google Play. From there, you can enter your delayed flight information on the "Delay Your Way" screen to get a coupon for a free Impossible Whopper. It can be redeemed at any U.S. Burger King location. Check out the video on the promotion for additional information, below.
Delayed flights suck, but Impossible Whoppers definitely don't.
If you haven't tried the Impossible Whopper for yourself, you've truly missed out on it. The veggie version of your favorite fast food sandwich takes a flame-grilled plant-based patty, and tops if off with fresh lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and diced onions. It's also smothered in the signature sauce you've probably come to know and love. Trust me — it's delish.
Don't wait to redeem your coupon, though — it's only valid until your flight takes off, and while supplies last. Each coupon must be redeemed on or before Jan. 6 (so if your flight is delayed by several weeks, you're SOL!) and it cannot be combined with other coupons. So don't even think about talking your server into giving you a free combo meal.
Meanwhile, you can shoot your shot via the Winter Whopperland Instant Win Game and Sweepstakes.

Flight delays are undeniably unfortunate, but Burger King is the best of a bad situation. So get a free sandwich and play some games to pass the time while you're stuck in the airport — you might ultimately win big.
