A Frontier Airlines pilot has whipped out his credit card and ordered pizza for 160 passengers on a diverted flight from Denver to Washington.
Severe thunderstorms saw the flight change course and touch down in Cheyenne, Wyoming after the food on board had run out.
We all know what it’s like to face delay after delay, but in an unusual step, the captain decided to feed his hungry passengers by giving the local Domino’s store a buzz.
Ordering one pizza for every row of starving travellers, a Frontier Airlines spokesperson wasn’t “sure if he (the captain) was hungry”, but chances are he didn't need to eat on arrival.
Despite a diverted flight and passengers stuck on the ground, the captain is being hailed as a ‘champion’ by those on board.
