One delayed flight to JFK with pepperoni please!
Just last week, the airlines released a bizarre safety video featuring a bunch of Internet memes, and now they’re serving up some munchies to angry passengers.
A flight from Philadelphia to Atlanta was rerouted to Knoxville, TN this week due to bad weather, so Delta decided to make it up to all the people on board via hot cheesy deliciousness.
Because pizza solves all of life’s problems.
And it apparently worked, with happy customers and others tweeting their gratitude and praise for the airline.
And a man named Samir Chaudry Snapchatted the whole thing which he called “The Pizza Summit.”
The manager of Marco’s Pizza in Ohio, which delivered the food, was a bit shocked by the request.
“I was a bit taken back at first,” said Ashley Akins. “We never delivered pizzas for airline passengers before, but it sounded like a great idea – an airline pizza party. My focus was getting the 40 pizzas done fast so that we could boast an ‘on-time’ delivery.”
A number of other flights were also reportedly treated to a Delta pizza party this week due to delays.
“It’s part of an effort company-wide when weather disrupts our operation to get food and beverages to delayed customers,” a Delta rep told CNN.
