It sure beats peanuts.
Major airlines, take note. As we’ve learned since elementary school, free pizza is the answer to most of life’s difficulties. It is also the best way to win over even the most apathetic, stressed or defeated of humans.
After severe weather in the Southeast grounded and canceled nearly 300 flights yesterday, Delta responded by ordering over 700 pies for frustrated and travel-weary passengers.
“We empower our agents and airport station leaders to find ways to take care of our customers when irregular operations disrupt travel,” Delta spokesperson Michael Thomas told ABC News.
In addition to free food, games and coloring books were also distributed to entertain young children.
In what seems like a rare move considering the constant irritation with the airline industry, travelers immediately took to social media to praise the Atlanta-based company for their kind gesture.
This passenger was stranded in Nashville for over two hours, but was relieved to find a flight attendant handing out free slices.
