On 6 September, American Airlines flight 2354 from Los Angeles to Dallas was diverted to the much smaller Wichita Falls Airport due to inclement weather. Eventually the flight got cancelled but the captain had a brilliant idea and ordered 40 pizzas at Papa John’s pizza. He then offered them to the passengers. “I don’t think I’ve seen this before,” said Josh Raines, a passenger on the flight.
“It was actually a team effort,” the captain replied. “While the copilot was checking for hotel rooms, the cabin crew passed around with drinks.”
