A generous pilot placated his tired and stressed out passengers by ordering 23 pizzas to their airplane during a snowstorm.
Freezing weather meant Air Canada Flight 608, which was bound for Halifax in Nova Scotia, had to divert to Fredericton, New Brunswick on Monday night, writes Daily Mail.
After being forced to keep the airplane grounded on the tarmac for several hours, the pilot decided to order some pizza pies to cheer up the stranded travellers.
Jofee Larivée, who manages Minglers Restaurant and Pub in Oromocto, told CNN the pilot requested 23 pizzas with cheese and pepperoni.
Her staff assembled the huge order in around an hour and delivered them right to the plane's door at Fredericton airport.
Larivée said the team were 'laughing all night' at the unusual order, which was a first for her restaurant.
She also noted that the kind pilot even called her up on Tuesday to thank the restaurant for managing to deliver the pizzas so quickly.
The passengers were touched by the gesture, with one writing on Twitter: 'On @AirCanada flight 608... couldn't land in Halifax so pilot treated us to pizza on the tarmac in Fredericton! Classy move!'
Halifax councillor Bill Karsten, who was on his way home, posted a photograph of a Air Canada cabin crew member smiling passenger while handing out the pizza.
Philomena Hughes told CBC News that the pilot made something that could have been very stressful a lot easier.
According to Hughes, they were onboard the airplane for around eight hours for what should have been a two-hour flight from Toronto to Halifax.
