A pilot for a Frontier Airlines flight flying from Reagan National on its way to Denver encountered severe storms and diverted to Cheyenne Wyoming. What passengers expected to be a major headache took a unique turn for the better when the pilot decided he wasn’t going to make his passengers suffer any further, so what did he do? What would any good pilot do? throw a pizza party of course!
The 160 passengers were treated to 38 pizzas from Domino’s. Captain Gerhard Brandner got on the PA system and delivered the following message: “Ladies and gentlemen, 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.” The plane went wild!
Was this a publicity stunt by the company or a great gesture by the crew? either way this delay was a win-win for everyone involved.
