Delta Cancels 300 Flights Then Buys Pizza For Passengers

Delta Airlines purchased pizza for passengers after it canceled hundreds of flights because of severe thunderstorms in the South.

The airline said it ordered more than 700 boxes of pizza and sub sandwiches for some customers who were affected by weather-related cancellations and delays Wednesday at airports in Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Ohio, Kentucky and elsewhere.

The food deliveries came after the airline canceled some 300 flights. 

Some of the displaced passengers posted pictures on Twitter, showing flight attendants and crew members handing out slices on planes.

Delta said it also provided games, coloring books and other items to "keep younger travelers entertained while they waited for storms to clear." 

One Twitter user who was stranded in Nashville for more than two hours thanked the company for the gesture.
