Domino's pizza manager Andy Ritchie has taken a lot of orders, but never one quite like this: to feed an entire plane full of hungry, delayed passengers.

It was about 10:30 pm on Monday when the pilot of the Frontier Airlines flight called in, said Ritchie, manager at the pizza chain in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
The pilot wanted to feed all 160 passengers and crew to make up for the delay, so Ritchie and his two employees whipped up around 35 pizzas and delivered them to the plane.
"We took them up to the front desk at the airport and they escorted our driver to the back and they handed the pizzas directly to the flight attendants," Ritchie told AFP.
The plane was en route from Washington when it was diverted to Cheyenne while it waited for bad weather to clear in Denver, US media said.
The plane, which was already hours behind schedule, sat on the ground at the small airport for about two hours, and there was no food on board.
Eventually the pilot made an announcement.
"He said 'Ladies and gentleman, Frontier Airlines is known for being one of the cheapest airlines in the US, but your captain is not cheap,' passenger Logan Marie Torres told KDVR. "'I just ordered pizza for the entire plane.'"
Ritchie confirmed that it was the pilot who paid by credit card for the order, which was several hundred dollars.
