Metro reported that the flight from Washington DC to Denver, which normally takes three hours, was forced to land in Nebraska, and spent two hours refueling in Cheyenne.
However, the tired and weary passengers were delighted when the captain took to the intercom to announce the imminent delivery of 50 pizzas.
Logan Marie Torres told FOX 31: “He said, ‘Ladies and gentleman, Frontier Airlines is known for being one of the cheapest airlines in the US, but your captain is not cheap. I just ordered pizza for the entire plane.'”
Logan, who was crowned Miss Colorado United States Teen 2014, added: “We want to applaud this Frontier Airlines captain who was so gracious to think of us and go out of his way to have pizza delivered to us on the plane!”
The flight landed in Denver five hours later than scheduled, but we’re betting that nobody complained.
