Pilot provides pizza for passengers

A US pilot treated his passengers to pizza when storms delayed their flight by a couple of hours.

The Frontier Airlines plane was heading from Washington DC to Denver, when it was diverted to Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Cheyenne Domino's Pizza manager Andrew Ritchie told The Associated Press he got a call at about 10pm local time on Monday just as he was about to send employees home.

He says the pilot told him he needed to feed 160 people - fast.

Mr Ritchie says his crew made about 35 pizzas and delivered them to the airport, where the driver handed the food to the flight attendants.

One of the passengers sent KUSA-TV a picture of flight attendants handing pizza boxes to people.

The television station reported that the flight left Cheyenne at about 10.30pm, shortly after the pizzas arrived.
