Air Canada Pilot Orders Pizza For All Of His Passengers After Their Flight Was Diverted

An Air Canada pilot is getting high praise for something that happened on Monday night. After a lengthy delay, he used his own money to order nearly two dozen pizzas and had them delivered to his passengers. The flight, left from Toronto for Halifax but was forced to divert to Fredericton after the Halifax airport was briefly shut down due to severe weather. Knowing they would be stuck for some time, the pilot called a local pizzeria and placed an order for 23 pizzas to be delivered to the airport.  While the pizza was being served, the pilot came out to inform the cabin of the plane’s status, and he also made sure to acknowledge that the pizza delivery was the result of a group effort, coordinated by staff and other pilots who helped retrieve and bring them into the plane.
