Delta Hands Out Free Pizzas To Customers Experiencing Flight Delays, Collective Rejoicing Ensues

If there’s anything that could make a flight delay better, it’s pizza.

This week, Delta canceled and delayed hundreds of flights due to poor weather conditions. According to The Huffington Post, the airline tried to brighten patrons’ day by hosting an impromptu pizza party, fit with 800 pizzas. 

"Nashville passengers were also treated to foot-long subs, and travelers in Panama City, Florida got 20 trays of chicken biscuits," the publication adds. 

Star Tribune reports some employees handed out coloring books and games to those with small children. 

In photos on Twitter, flight attendants can be seen passing out cheesy pepperoni slices to passengers, while crew members carry towers of boxes for customers.

And while it may not have fixed the weather, we’re sure it sent some positive vibes.
