Passengers get stuck on runway, so airline orders pizza for everyone

Your move, Ryanair…

PASSENGERS ON THE 2pm flight from Philadelphia to Atlanta yesterday were treated to some seriously delicious customer service.

Instead, the captain landed in Knoxville, Tennessee, where passengers faced another long wait on the runway.

The flight, which normally takes around two hours, finally arrived in Atlanta, America’s busiest airport, at 7pm, CNN reports.
