Earlier this week, Delta proved that there’s one surefire way to win back the hearts of passengers on a delayed flight: free pizza. During heavy rains in Atlanta, a flight due to arrive from Philadelphia made a pit stop in Knoxville, Tennessee to wait out the weather. Much to the passengers’ delight, box upon box of the good stuff arrived via baggage cart once they landed.

The plane eventually made it to its final destination, turning what is usually a two-hour flight into five-hour ordeal pizza party. And we thought they couldn’t top their meme-filled safety video. Slow clap, Delta.
