Domino's Pizza Makes a Special Delivery to Hungry Airplane Passengers
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- What's better than having
Domino's pizza delivered to your door? How about having Domino's delivered to
you on an airplane?
After a nearly three-hour flight delay on Monday, Nov. 5, at the Dubuque
Regional Airport in Dubuque, Iowa, passengers aboard a Chicago-bound flight
were pleasantly surprised when their flight attendant morphed into a Domino's
delivery expert, carrying piping hot pizzas.
"Even though the airport was a bit beyond their normal delivery area, the
local Domino's was able to have hot pizzas delivered to us in about 25
minutes," said Domino's Pizza area leader Jeff Cullers, a passenger on the
plane. "Everyone aboard the plane was really happy with the special delivery."
Cullers, who arranged the delivery after his fellow passengers started
grumbling about the delay, works with 60 franchise-owned Domino's Pizza stores
in Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Nebraska.
After the second hour of the delay, the pilot and airport staff gave
clearance to have Domino's pizza delivered to the flight's passengers and
crew. Never has an airplane meal tasted so good.
