Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear wings. Like the Air Canada pilot who ordered 23 pizzas onto the tarmac to feed his planeload of stranded passengers during a snowstorm in Canada.

The inclement weather saw Air Canada Flight 608 (which was en route from Toronto to Halifax in Nova Scotia) redirected to Fredericton, New Brunswick.

The plane was grounded on the snowy tarmac for several hours so the pilot lifted everyone’s spirits by ordering a truckload of pizza for all passengers on board the A320.


The pilot phoned through the order to Minglers Restaurant and Pub in Oromocto where staff got to work straight away on the unusually large order.

They then delivered it right to the plane’s door at Fredericton airport. Talk about awesome service!

Passengers took to Twitter to praise the generous pilot with one commenting “On @AirCanada flight 608… couldn’t land in Halifax so pilot treated us to pizza on the tarmac in Fredericton! Classy move!”


Classy Indeed. sir

The bad weather saw the passengers stuck onboard the airplane for around eight hours for what should have been a two-hour flight from Toronto to Halifax.

Thank goodness for that cheesy pepperoni pizza!

What do you think of the pilot’s generous act?
