CHEYENNE, Wyo. (July 9, 2014) – An airline pilot paid for more than a dozen pizzas to feed hungry passengers who’d been stranded for hours.

Passengers say the Frontier Airlines pilot went above and beyond the call of duty by placing the order. The flight from Washingon, DC, to Denver was delayed Monday because of the weather.

Captain Gerhard Bradner figured everyone had to be hungry after the flight was diverted to Cheyenne, Wyo.

“I was getting hungry and we’re kind of a big family here at Frontier and I figured it’s time to take care of the passengers here and I called Domino’s and ordered some pizza,” Bradner said. “I’m known for that…whoever is with me, they’re not gonna go hungry.”

Bradner paid for the pizzas with his own money to feed the passengers and crew. The flight arrived at its destination five hours later than expected.
