A Frontier Airlines pilot treated his passengers to pizza when storms diverted a Denver-bound flight to Cheyenne, where the plane was stuck for a couple of hours.
Cheyenne Domino's Pizza manager Andrew Ritchie told The Associated Press he got a call at about 10 p.m. Monday just as he was about to send employees home. He says the pilot told him he needed to feed 160 people — fast.
Ritchie says his crew made about 35 pizzas and delivered them to the airport, where the driver handed the food off to flight attendants.
One of the passengers sent KUSA-TV a picture of flight attendants handing pizza boxes to people.
The television station reports that the flight to Denver, which originated in Washington, D.C., left Cheyenne about 10:30 p.m., shortly after the pizzas arrived.
