Captain, my captain! Pilot buys pizzas for passengers grounded by storm

Faced with potentially hungry—and grumpy—passengers, a Frontier Airlines pilot treated them to pizza when storms diverted a Denver-bound flight to Cheyenne, where the plane was stuck for a couple of hours. Cheyenne Domino’s Pizza manager Andrew Ritchie said that he got a call about 10pm local time Monday just as he was about to send employees home. In all, Ritchie said his crew made about 35 pizzas and delivered them to the airport, where the driver handed the food off to flight attendants.
