Pilot Buys Pizzas For Passengers Grounded By Storm

Posted: Updated:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - 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.

The flight to Denver, which originated in Washington, D.C., left Cheyenne about 10:30 p.m., shortly after the pizzas arrived.
