A Frontier Airlines pilot made the news last week for ordering pizza after weather grounded the Denver-bound plane in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Pilot Gerhard Brandner bought Domino’s Pizza for passengers on Flight 719 stuck on his diverted plane after food rations dwindled during the grounding. Passengers tweeted their thanks — and photos — to the pilot and Frontier after 50 pizzas were delivered to the plane.

Brandner told a Denver news station: “Of course, if the need arises, you need to take care of your family. You need to take care of your passengers. They’re my responsibility from the moment they step on the aircraft.”
