Pilot Orders Pizzas For Passengers Stuck On Aircraft

Pilot Orders Pizzas For Passengers Stuck On Aircraft

The pilot of Flight 608 from Toronto to Halifax, Nova Scotia had to divert to Fredericton, New Brunswick due to bad weather.

But despite the wild weather the staff hunkered down and baked the cheese and pepperoni pizzas and delivered them to the plane. After several hours of being stuck in the plane, the passengers started to stress, but their pilot, in a sweet gesture, made a decision to get pizzas delivered for the passengers, reported CNN.

"We do a catering business here too, so we're used to unusual numbers, but I mean on a storm night?"

Her crew got the pizzas ready in an hour and sent them to the airport via Minglers' delivery service.

According to passengers who reached out to CBC News, the pilot of the plane kept the passengers well informed during the entirety of the flight and delays and walked down the entire length of the plane to ensure that passengers were aware of the problems that they were facing. "For a plane? No", Larivée told the CBC, adding, "I hope everybody enjoyed their pizzas".

This left passengers on an Air Canada flight heading towards Halifax stuck as the Fredericton airport for over eight hours. The plane had a capacity of more than 150 passengers, but it was not a flight that included any meal.

"It was something that could have been very stressful; he made it a lot easier", she said.

Halifax councillor Bill Karsten, who was on his way home, posted a photograph of a Air Canada cabin crew member smiling passenger while handing out the pizza. "Everybody chipped in, so he didn't want to take the whole credit for himself", she said.

The plane was scheduled to arrive back in Halifax on Tuesday afternoon.

This isn't the first time that pizza has been delivered to a local airport.
