A massive water main broke open Monday underneath the economy parking lot at Philadelphia International Airport, shutting down water pressure to all terminals for hours — making conditions and just about everyone inside the airport miserable — before service was restored in the evening, city and airport officials said. While the water pressure was out, the fountains didn’t work, the toilets couldn’t flush, and the faucets were out of commission.
