Captain Buys Pizza for Frontier Airlines Passengers at Cheyenne Regional Airport [VIDEO, POLL]

When a Frontier Airlines flight from Washington, DC, to Denver was diverted to Cheyenne, Wyoming because of severe weather on Monday, the captain reached into his own wallet after realizing his passengers hadn’t eaten in seven hours. The result? A major pizza party.

After circling western Nebraska for a while due to inclement weather, the flight was diverted to Cheyenne Regional Airport to avoid running out of fuel. The safety precaution then extended the three-hour flight to seven.

That’s when the captain announced over the intercom:

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.”

Sure enough, a record 50 pizzas were delivered to the passengers on board, who had a full two hours to enjoy them before continuing on to the Mile High City.

This may be one for the record books, folks.
